Discussions that mention seroquel

Alzheimer's Disease & Dementia board

Hi Lucky.

This is a devastating disease. I'm watching my mom progress through it and it's heartbreaking. She was in the moderate stages til a 2 week hospitalization a few weeks ago - while in the hosp lost her ability to walk, and her AD progressed a few stages. We had to place her and she now requires meds. Dr. put her on Seroquel but is considering Lexapro, so apparantly it's an acceptable drug for AD patients. But dr. did say Ativan is not good for AD (my mom's other dr was considering it) which confirmed something I'd read online about benzo's not being great for AD (I think it said it can cause excitement of some sort?). Maybe you should consult a dr who specializes in AD.

Good luck, and know you're not alone with your grief.....bless your heart.
