Office visit with neurologist today. CT scan and EEG normal for my 88 yr old mom with dementia.
She is taking risperidone at night and sleeping well. Has also been put on thyroid medication. Both meds have helped. Mom has improved. Doc says, "If it ain't broken, don't fix it." I am worried about the nature of dementia being a progressive disease. In your experiences, shall I just sit tight and call doc if I notice any backsliding, or should I speak to doc again about a med to slow the progression of disease.
