My mum has just been diagnosed with mixed dementia (vascular/Alzheimers). Up until now she has been great in every way except her short term memory in gone. Her diet is really good, exercises, loves to buy clothes and always puts makeup and does her hair. Never taken medication.
Just this last few days shes been taking simvastatin for cholestrol and Donepezil for Alzheimers. Yesterday she confused; but this morning she was hallucinating and mixed up to hell. (I eork in a pharmacy and brought a uti test home to trst for uti which was clear) she is well hydrated.
Im sure this episode was caused by either/both new meducations. Ive stopped her taking them.
Anyone got any insight??
