My mom is 97. She fell recently and has a compression fracture of the first lumbar. Tramadol and Tylenol 3 have very bad side effects on her which led to two more falls resulting in three broken ribs and a nasty bump and a staple on her head. The pain has made her crazy but the pain meds have made her crazy and mean to the point of violence. She is currently in the hospital with restraints and occasional haldol so she can rest. What else can be done?? Everyone including doctors seem at a loss. Prior to this she had minor age related dementia with no diagnosis of dementia. Now she is full blown dementia with paranoia, hallucinations and violence.
