My suggestion is to talk to your family I know you dont think your family can handle it but i bet you will be suprised on how wel lyour family can handle what you tell them. Also I know you take care of your mom all the time but if you have other family mebers living in your house its not fair to let you do everything espcially since you are only 17 and cant drive and you deserve breaks once in awhile. i would just flat out tell the other people in your family how you feel and how they can help you out with stuff. And if its just you and your mom I wouldd say to ask somebody who your really close to besides your mom in your family that you are stressed out and you dont know how much more you take helpping your mom24/7 and see if they can help you out with a lot of stuff.

Hi Mel,

(I'm just going to label this as triggering because some users may find it to be so.)

I first want to say that I think you are exceptionally strong to be dealing with this on your own, so kudos to you.
What I would suggest is to talk to the rest of your family about this. Do you have some older siblings you could talk to? This may help take some responsibility off your shoulders. Also, it is a good idea to talk to your doctor about this. The doctor needs to know what the medication is doing to your mother so they can either change it or let you know how to deal with it. Go to the doctor with your mom to talk about this.

All the best.
