My mom, age 73, has later stage Alzheimers. She also has Vascular Dementia. She has recently started to have seizures, each one lasting up to 2 minutes. My moms neurologist told me that seizures are not typically part of the disease progression, but I have read conflicting things online. Her neurologist is wanting us to see someone who specializes in seizures to possibly start anti-seizure meds. I have heard that these meds cause the patient to become very tired and then they might become a fall risk. I don't know what to do. Ofcourse I want to do everything and anything that will be right for my mom to help her, but also do not want her to be drugged and a possible fall risk. Despite being far along in the disease she is still very mobile and is constantly walking around. I would appreciate any advice if you have had a similar situation. With thanks.
