Radar Online reports that Amanda Bynes is said to be responding well to her schizophrenia medication and her parents Rick and Lynn are proud of her progress.
A source said: "Amanda is responding very well to the medication she is taking for schizophrenia. Rick and Lynn are absolutely thrilled with the progress she has made in such a short amount of time. She continues to see doctors several times a week. Taking a class in fashion merchandising at a fashion school in Orange County has been an incredibly positive experience for Amanda. It's only one class, but it's enough to keep Amanda busy. The only kink is the commute which from her parents house in Thousand Oaks to Orange County is long, and Amanda is always driven by one of her parents or another family member. When not in class or at the doctor, Amanda has been frequenting the gym. Her parent's have told friends they feel that they have their beloved daughter back for the first time in years."
After months of bizarre behavior, Bynes was diagnosed with schizophrenia and hospitalized. The last straw was when she set a fire in the driveway of a neighbor in Thousand Oaks, California last summer. Lynn was given conservatorship. Bynes was sent to a treatment facility and is now in the care of her parents.
After she was released in December, Lynn and their attorney Tamar Arminak said in a statement: "Amanda has completed her inpatient rehabilitation and she's feeling better every day. She's now looking at various colleges with the intention of majoring in fashion design. She's mentioned before she's interested in creating a clothing line. Despite the fact Amanda is no longer in a facility, her outpatient treatment is continuing. She's very happy to re-establish the loving relationship with her family that she once shared."
The source said that living with her parents has been "extremely essential for Amanda's progress. However, Amanda has been expressing a desire to move out, which is actually a good sign. It's not likely she will be moving out of their house for at least the next several months."
