While in a nursing home with dementia or alzheimers? The NH wanted to put my dad (91) on this due to "some anxiety" he was having at bedtime but I told them NO WAY until I actually talked to the physc nurse/doctor to find out exactly what was happening and to let them know that my research showed it is for only a "short term (like 4 or 5 weeks)" to be used. Well its been 2 weeks and the physc person hasn't called me back....so I guess I will have to call "again" and find out when she is going to get back with me. I already told them that (not necessarily them) but lots of these places just want to load them up with meds to keep them quiet or keep them sleeping. I could understand if he was trying to do things to hurt himself or break things but they haven't told me any of this is happening, so maybe they figured they are dealing with someone who is keeping track of whats going on.
