In Reply to: Post-menopause psychiatric problems in Down's syndrome child posted by Donald B. Cofman on February 11, 2000 at 16:48:22:

My daughter age 34 is now post-menapausal. I have been unable to find any information regarding this and the other changes that will occur as she ages. I good friend had a brother with Downs that developed alzeheimer's type dementia. He had it for about five years before he passed away. I have found vitamin E 400 mg helpful in increasing attentiveness and memory in my daughter. It certainly wouldn't hurt anything if she took the vitamin. Good luck, God bless. Dona : I have a 50-year-old sister-in-law with Down's syndrome. After going through menopause, she has developed psychiatric problems, including apparent paranoia and dementia. We live in Turkey at present, and none of the local doctors have ever seen a post-menopausal Down's syndrome female. Normal adult treatments lead to side effects: hypertropism, etc. Herbal treatments such as St. John's wort have minimal effect, if any. Can anyone offer suggestions? Thank you.
