My Dad is 92 yrs old and has been on Celexa for 1 yr. He was recently admitted to the hospital with low
sodium levels and lots of water retention. He started getting extremely confused and agitated and Haldol
was administered for 5 days along with Atavan. The Haldol seemed to only make him more agitated and
confused. At the end of 5 days, Haldol and Atavan stopped and Xanax given for the next 6 days. He is
now home and is still very confused and has now not only short-term, but long-term memory loss. He
is now being labeled with Dementia. I am very confused myself, since prior to all of this, he wa quite
active and pretty mentally alert for 92. I don't know if this is truly Dementia, or if the drug combinations
may have done some irreparable damage. Should Celexa be discontinued?
