Good! This is something to discuss with the neurologist. Restlessness can be a common condition in dementia. Inability to sleep at night is also common, and can be a real challenge for caregiving. There may be treatments for these conditions.

The neurologist we saw would never start more than one medication at a time, so he asked us to prioritize the symptoms we wanted to see treated. For me the problem of not sleeping through the night was #1, hands down. Fortunately the treatment for that was very effective.

Do let us know about the doctor visit, and how this is working out for you.
