He's been on anti-anxiety drugs for 75 yrs. Valium 5mg 3x. My husbands been on an anti-anxiety drugs since he was 5, Was diagnosed w/ vascular dementia 3 yrs ago and has always been kind and loving w/o aggression or outbursts. We cut him from 15mgs to 5 ms of Valium last November and ut seeed ok.The outbursts, hallucination and aggression started 3 mos ago and we wemt back to the 5mg of Valium 3x daily and no longer works. It an take 1,5 hours to start to kick in and no longer works more than a couple of hours I want to use Lorazepam which works faster and is more effective with the anxiety. His Dr. wants to try Seroquel or Risperidol. I am vehemently against all of them. He is never left alone and is his oll self when on the benodiazepams. Don't know how to get my desires across and I don't write the prescriptions.
