Medication For Depression

Medication For Depression

Just thought I'd let you all know that my husband was getting very depressed as his alzheimers is worsening. He was even saying he wanted to die and he's had enough of this world. His appetite had hit ground zero and he's very underweight anyway so that was a big concern. The doc got him on to citalopram 20mg once a day. Brilliant!!!! after a couple of weeks a huge change.... hes happy every day now and that makes the alzheimers much more managable. I totally recommend it. He's getting a… read more

Trazadone

Trazadone

My mother is in a memory care facility and has continuously continuously gotten urinary tract infections.. She is very mean when she is on them. But today when we went to take her to the urologist we found out she did not have one, but she was very angry and anxious and it took us an hour to get her out of the home and get her to the doctor. They told us that she even hits them when they try and get her to take a shower. It's very difficult to see her so anxious and agitated. It makes us sad… read more

Help With Sleeping

Help With Sleeping

My mom is 74, diagnosed with Alzheimer's 4 years ago. Her symptoms are markedly worse when she isn't sleeping well and when her stress level is high. Sleep seems to be a constant problem for her. Her doctor prescribed a very small dose of Quetiapine 3 nights a week, but I feel like the medication might be making her confusion worse, and she seems to hallucinate sometimes, especially during the night, and I wonder if that is also caused by the Quetiapine.

Has anyone had a doctor recommend a… read more

Extreme Tiredness And Confusion

Extreme Tiredness And Confusion

Mom unusually woke this morning with extreme tiredness and confusion. As a reminder from an earlier post, mom broke her ankle and was placed in a cast this week, she is using a walker. She got up to use the restroom and I could hearing her mumbling about not having any toilet paper when there was actually plenty there. I went to check on her and she had fallen asleep with her head resting on her knees. It took strength to get her back in an upright position. She had very little strength and I… read more

Starting Trazadone

Starting Trazadone

Mom has just been prescribed Trazadone for both sleep and paranoia. At what time in the evening is the best time to give. Also, how drowsy does this med make them? Will she now be able to sleep through the night? Do I have to worry about her having accidents in bed, although she hasn‘t had those problems yet. She also broke her ankle last week and had to put a cast on because she wouldn’t leave on her orthopedic boot. I worry so much about her getting up in the middle of the night and falling… read more
