Our Mom is 106 (will turn 107 in Nov.) She is cared for in her home by three paid caregivers along with my sister and myself. She is healthy but has short-term memory loss and is too weak to stand or walk. She requires full-assist transfers. She has severe arthritis pain in her back, thus we give her hydrocodone morning and night. We recently asked Dr. if we could try a less strong pain med. He prescribed Tramadol. After 2 weeks on it, she developed a tremor in her right hand (her left is disabled by a long-ago stroke) She also seemed to have loss of vision. Dr. advised us to stop the drug and to give her tylenol/advil instead. First day off of tramadol, she began to have severe anxiety symptoms and seemed to be hallucinating about various things. She is normally pretty quiet, but she began a litany of loud questions and comments. She wanted us to look for her car, to take her home, etc. Previously, we had been giving her a light dose of ativan once a day because she was having mild anxiety but only in the afternoons. Dr. said we can increase that dosage. So sad to see her so agitated and confused at this late date. Any suggestions to help calm her further (natural things) would be appreciated.
