My mom is taking 0.25mg of Respiridone in the morning and 0.50mg at night to “calm” her. It’s not working. My father is exhausted, I’m exhausted what are we to do!? I KNOW she can’t help it. She doesn’t even realize she is keeping us awake. She just dozes, never actually sleeps. She complains of pain in her bad hip, we give her acetaminophen and ibuprofen but it doesn’t help. My dad and I are not going to be able to care for much longer if this doesn’t stop. I am an only child. The reason we don’t have outside help is due to lack of money but they don’t qualify for Medicaid.
