My dementia father has been up all day and night and has become very agitated. Given Atavan; worked well at first, but now not at all?
My father has become very agitated, kicking and hitting when my mother and I and the caregiver try to do anything for him. He is up all day and night after a bout of sleeping both day and night. In the evening he takes off all of his clothes and will not let anyone put on depends. The doctor prescribed Atavan for agitation. This drug worked for two days and then he was back to being agitated. What could be going on?
