Discussions that mention lorazepam

Alzheimer's Disease & Dementia board

My FIL has been on that drug for several months and it did not keep him from getting violent. He is now on buspirone, Zoloft, lorazepam and depakote. Sometimes it takes a combination of drugs to get the right result. His experience with Seroquel was not good. He seems calm now, but he is getting frailer as time goes on. Of course, he is on three blood pressure medications as well.

One bright note--we signed up for the new medicare drug plan and his monthly bills went from $500 per month to $165.
