My wife with stage 5/7 ALS seems very agitated most of the time - pacing, wanting to go home, etc. What are the best medicines to relieve her agitation? My doctor usually waits for me to suggest a medicine. What do nursing homes use? Every time I go to a nursing home all the patients look almost comatose just quietly sitting and staring into space. I guess this is for the convenience of the staff. I wouldn't want that for my wife.
