Are there any meds that help dementia patients with anxiety and anger that don't make them zonked?
Mom's caregiver at night says she is becoming more confused and anxious in the evening. Says she wants to go home (she already is) wants to be alone, wants to call 911 on everyone. Got up last week and wanted to make breakfast at 130am. It takes a while to calm her down . The caregiver says there are meds she could take. I can't see Mom taking a pill when she's all worked up like that but maybe there is some thing she could take daily. Something that won't zonk her. I made her an appt in a few weeks but would like some suggestions about what you have done to deal with this problem.
