Discussions that mention vicodin

Parkinson's Disease board


Greetings-I am writing about my grandmother, who has had Parkinson's for 8 years, and palsy. she is 84.
She fell and broke her hip about amonth ago. Had a partial hip replacement, and physically is recovering well.
BUT-
seemingly ever since she was administered vicodin, morphine, etc.. for the pre and post -op pain, she has fallen into a state of dementia and hallucinations. She was given anti-psychotic meds that help sometimes and do not help. Her Parkinson' doctor is baffled, and cannot tell us why she is constantly mubbling, aggressive, thinks there are bombs in the room, and that there is "another bus coming to drop off more people" etc..
anybody else heard of an experience of dementia in parkinson't patients after a traumatic injury?
Thanks-
