Hello again. If her doc suggests that she needs to get in the hospital to adjust her medications properly, I would try my best to encourage her to get there.
If she won't hear you now because of being on the high end you may have to wait until she comes down to be able to talk to her. You can't make anyone do anything that they are not wanting to do. But do at least try right now to talk to her and be calm about it and show her that you are really concerned for her at the moment and that you want to help her through this.
Good Luck.

There isn't much you can do for a person if they refuse to take their meds. Unless they are a threat to themself or others. You'll probably have to wait till she down again to talk some sense into her. While she is on her high points, she probably won't listen to you or anyone else.

Best Wishes!
