My Father-in-law Is Not Making Any Sense. He Talks With Regular And Made Up Words All The Time. How Do Other Caregivers Handle This?

My Father-in-law Is Not Making Any Sense. He Talks With Regular And Made Up Words All The Time. How Do Other Caregivers Handle This?

I'm also wondering if this really is "normal" for dementia. All of my dementia information says that people with this disease will sometimes not make sense. However, he is not making sense all of the time. He's seeing things that aren't there and making up words. Just curious as to if anyone else is dealing with this or is this really out of the ordinary. Thanks!

Mom was becoming incontinent prior to taking the Zoloft. So for her, I don’t think there’s a connection. Hugs to you too, Gwen.

Does it hurt to take this medication in the morning instead of evening, in my situation it is easier to give with breakfast.

I think you should discuss this with his doctors. At least let them know what you have decided to do.

How Do You Address The Future.

How Do You Address The Future.

We are pretty early in my husband’s diagnosis. We both have career backgrounds in medicine. He will talk about there being no cure for Alzheimer’s, but still talks about the doctor fixing it. I have tried to discuss a little of what might be coming, I know that somewhere he knows. He doesn’t retain that so I have been saying it progresses differently for everyone. When he focuses on his deficits to much he becomes scared and tearful. I understand! The other side of the coin is that I would like… read more

Does Anyone Have Experience With Aricept 23mg

Does Anyone Have Experience With Aricept 23mg

My mother is in early stages of Alzheimer's, she is currently on Aricept 10mg daily. Her neurologist took her off her Namenda because we saw no improvement within the first month. I hear there is a 23mg Aricept but it frequently causes GI upset. I wondered if anyone has any experience with that dosage? And if anyone has any other suggestions i would greatly appreciate it. This is just the start of this journey with my mom and sisters. I am feeling a little helpless and being a nurse it is my… read more

My husband used to get explosive diarrhoea about 4 hours after taking 10mg of Aricept but a friend suggested I give him 1/2 a tablet in the morning and 1/2 at night and that has worked out well.

Could My Mother Be Denied?

Could My Mother Be Denied?

I need a little help with an insurance question. My mothers has Alzheimer and is taking Namaric 28-10 mg and Mirtazapine 15mg. My father could not cope and isn't in the picture. I am her caregiver. I have a power of attorney. She is separated from my dad, but not legally because the State of Texas doesn't recognize separation. Each has decided not to persue a divorce. Dad is 87 and mother is 84. Mother has $620 from S.S. each month and that's it. There was no money set aside for long… read more
