She was told her brain was shrinking when diagnosed about 8 years ago. Her behavior had become intolerable and after gall bladder surgery she was given meds that just did not work on her and made her hallucinate. Gerontologist put her on Remeron and Celexa and they worked great. Now he is weaning her off the Celexa to see if that is the culprit. Tested her sodium levels and they are fine.
We did a CT of brain today and she was dying with a headache by the time we were seen. Tylenol does nothing and Advil does nothing either which surprised me. Mom is on Coumadin so we have to watch INR for changes.
Has anyone else had this problem or solved it or just have an idea as to what could be done to help her? I have been trying to increase her intake of fluid as she does not drink much and gets angry when you try to push it a bit.
Any input on this would be appreciated!
