Is it safe for a women 85 years old in a nursing home to take 10 mgs. Virginia has some dementia and depression could be nursing home induced? I have refused any and all antipsychotic drugs. I have been googleing it but still cannot make up my mind to ok this drug as her primary health care person or not.Virginia has been getting better after 60 days in a nursing home but is restless and could use some relief. An ok drug for a 85 year old nursing home women or has anyone experenced bad side effect and not an ok drug?
