Re: we really need some relief here
I thought I sent you a post before but maybe not, Im jess 45 caring for my 83yr old mom in last stage AD. Ativan, zanex, ambein, all did not help our mom it really just made her more wired. Our doctor has her on Trazadone 100 mg. for sleeping, Depakote 250 mg. for agitation etc. and Librium 25 mg only as needed. She also takes seroquil 200 mg. and celexa 40 mg. You need to get your doctor to listen to you or you need to change doctors. There is no reason for her to suffer and you also. Could she have a UTI ??? anytime mom has one she is unbearable to deal with. I have read on this type of behavior and my heart goes out to you. I havent expeiranced this with mom I pray I dont, but if I were you, somebody would listen to me and try something differant. I had a doctor in the beginning who would not listen to us and he kept putting her back on the ativan etc. I finally changed doctors and this one has helped us tremendously. Of course his mom has AD and so he knows how it goes. After all I have been through I would not keep a doctor five mins. who would not listen or had an attitude of being to busy to care. Consult your doctor get him to listen or get rid of him or her and find another. In the meantime get someone to help out even for an hour and do something for yourself. This is overwhelming and you need and deserve a break.
