I care for my 96 year old mother. She is oriented, but has short memory issues. She ambulates well. A few nights a week she has trouble sleeping, she gets anxious and then says she feels nauseated. I realize now it is anxiety. I see her Dr next week and I am thinking of ask him if its ok to give her Xanax a half dose of .25 mg. Anyone have experience using Xanax or something like this with an older adult?
