Hi Nicolai - sorry to hear of this situation.
I really wonder what is going on. What you describe sounds like a really severe and rapidly increasing form of dementia or some oher neurological disorder. One wouldn't expect the drugs mentioned to have this impact unless given in unusually high doses.
Thambo memorial ought to be able to at least give you a clear diagnosis and prognosis ( a clear statement of the likely outlook and progress and response to treatment of that condition ) ; and I don't think much of any psychiarists who can't be more helpful that what you seem to be describing.
I don't quite understand the reference to the person from Tara - was there a suggestion that she be taken to Tara for further care ? That might be a good idea, and Tara is not an institution for criminals, but has for decades been a general psychiatric care establishment.
And it is supposed to be linked to the Dept of Psychiatry at Wits, so it might later be possible once she is there, to arrange for someone from the Wits Dept. to see and re-assess her and advise. If they still have medical students around, that can also help, as if they can be gotten interested in someone, they have the possibility to research the issue and ask questions of the specialists.
