My mom was put on a 25mg. patch days ago. It takes about 18 hours to fully hit the blood stream. Well the next day she was nasty with the nurse, whom she actually likes.
The next nurse visit was three days later. OMG, I was embarresed for both of them. Mom actually ignored the nurses questions and when she was coaxed, by me, to answer we got one word replies.
The nurse asked what day of the week it was, Mom said....Wed, Thurs, Fri, take your pick. When asked what season it was Momma said spring., You done now,? I wanted to crawl under a rock.
She was NOT like that before the patch. All Mom did today was sleep and cry. She says she just can't take it anymore and wants to die.
She only had 2 a sips of coffee, not a morsel of food, all day.
I reached out to the on call nurse tonight. Explained the change in her and that seemingly coincide with the patch. She said give the patch more time. And she'd call and check on us tomorrow.
Im lost and a blubbering idiot.
The internet has way too much info. I'm hoping for some personal experiences, as opposed to blind/double blind studies. Thanks if you can help.
