Looking for help on Respidol Vs Seroquel for Alzheimers . My dad is 81 and gets irritated after 4pm , wants to go home and see mom . Paces Please let me know if someone has experience on the drugs , the Dr first perscribed seroquel than said it may be to strong and now gave him 1mg respidol
I did find that it helped with that restless mind and anxious thoughts that were contributing to my insomnia so there's that. It's too bad about the weight gain side effect cause I thought I had finally found something for my insomnia.
Mom started seroquel at bedtime in March at a memory care facility-98% of their residents are on anti-psych drugs - something I didn't know when I placed her there
Staff insisted she be given dosage in daytime too which began late July and now they want to add Ativan - at 93 these drugs make her sleepy and dizzy and put her at great risk of falls - many residents lean forward in their wheelchairs with their heads on dining tables at mealtimes -
Appreciate experiences and outcomes of others
