Only 3 weeks ago my brother was in a geriatric psych hospital because of paranoid delusions/verbal aggression toward staff. (Won't repeat the details I posted here at the time.) A Zyprexa/Prozac combination has cleared his delusions and confusion; he is "himself" again. (He doesn't remember ANY of the dementia weeks. He trusts that they happened.) Since returning to the long-term care place he can walk again. The meds and physical therapy have worked so well he now thinks he's "cured" and can return to his home. He wants a full psych assessment (I agree this would be good), but next available appointments are 5 months away.
My understanding (from this site's postings and online research) is that Zyprexa is a temporary solution at best. Any experience out there?
