Anyone have experience with occasional use of low dose Seroquel for sleep or anxiety?
Thanks. We are working on it
Mine was $49.95 on Amazon.
My husband’s new neurologist put him on a starting 5 mg dose of Aricept. He hasn’t taken it yet because he also prescribed an extra dose of Seroquel in the morning and I wanted to see how that affected him first. He has used the Exelon patch in the past but started to not let me put it in him so I had to stop. Thanks in advance for your help.
My mom, has took pills for years. Now, its getting to the point where she really don't know how to swallow them. She tries to chew them up, and if you give her water. She puts them in water. I'm having a really hard time with this. She don't like taking them, but i know she needs them. Any ideas?
I crush pills and open capsules and put them in about a tablespoon of pudding. Sometimes I top with whipped cream from a can. Walmart sells small cups of pudding in packs of 12. I get 3 servings… read more
My husband has been in memory care for 7 months. Recently a female resident has been kissing and hugging my husband and he goes along with the "necking" At first, I wasn't worried a bout this . But today I got annoyed. Has anyone had this to handle?
Barry also became inappropriate with female residents touching them and the facility put him on another medication and the problem stopped. I was astounded when the nurse first told me what he was… read more
I'm a caregiver for my Mom and concerned about my own memory loss. Not sure if it's just "busy" me doing too much. But curious is I should go for baseline testing.
Here is a link to a self test for dementia. Be sure to validate the results with a medical professional before taking any action.
Anyone tried the protocol or know anyone that has?
You admit not reading the book yet you criticize his findings, how ignorant and foolish of you.
Owen is in late stage Alzheimer’s. In the last 4 or 5 months he has lost 13 lbs. 10% of his body weight.
He literally eats like a horse with no changes over this time period. I read about cachexia which is when the body doesn’t absorb nutrients properly anymore. Supplements seem to agitate him. Have you experienced this and what did it mean to you? Did it continue, find a level? Improve?
My wife went from somewhere in the 150s down to the 120s in the first year after her diagnosis. But she's been stabilized in the 120s for over a year now. I make her shakes in the blender that include… read more
Three Pet scans show I have this. Namenda & Exelon help the brain in different ways and are affective when taken together. I still drive , care for my self, ect. I also take Folate , VIT B12. At times I forget some things. Why aren't these 2 meds used more often to help others? I have tried to reach out to help , but no response. It is so frustrating, these are not used more. I think some Drs need to try to be more awareto help others. When I first got it , I could not think or speak right, but… read more

my husband has been diagnosed with alzheimers. he's been violent and has been in and out of hospitals and homes and is now settled somewhere else. he seems to have outbursts that last around an hour - where he comes out with the most hurtful and offensive things. i understand it's the disease however nothing seems to calm him down. he's on seroquel and another medication. he's been on a few others also but the doctors took him off some of them. i wanted to know if a cbd or hemp oil may help. i… read more
I have heard cbd oil works good for lifting the mood and calming the mood. I spoke with someone knowledgeable at the cbd store. I am sure you know CBD isn't THC.
