Haldol and Trazadone helps Mom's dementia.

Started by

There is hope with patients who have dementia. I don't care what the warnings are it worked.

Mom, who is 85, was suffering from dementia. She got really aggressive, hearing things, seeing things, and not sleeping. Sound familiar? Her doctor consulted a psychiatrist who said she was suffering from sun down . I thought he was crazy actually. He put her on Haldol 1 mg in am and 1.5 mg at night with 25mg of Trazodone. I swear my mom is like her old self like when I was a kid. It's well worth the try. Talk to your doctor.
