Greetings kind people. I did write before. I need advice please. Is it correct that a person with Dementia should not take antidepressants or anti anxiety medication?
My Mum has been confirmed with Dementia but her mood is very low and she is stressed and anxious. Unfortunatly she has been like that prior to dementia.
She has tried two types of antidepressants and they made her worse crying alot etc.
She is now on nothing but needs help as she is so low and sad.
I was told the Dr will put her on a different antidepressant but then someone else said she needs specific meds for dementia as the chemicals in her brain can be affected to her detriment.
She is in a care home but to be honest they have made mistakes and I need to be on board with her meds.
I cant move her as it will be too stressful for her.
Does anyone have a recommendation for meds that may help at all please? I will then suggest them to the facility Doctor.
