I have to get up at 0430 for my shift at the hospital , and it's midnight. I've done all I could do , she had her seroquel , she had her nightly ensure , I changed her tucked her in , she complained her room was to dark so I put another light bulb in her lamp. Her room now. Looks like Vegas . She sees her neurologist on Tuesday , if I live through my next 3 12 hour shifts at the hospital .she dosent have a UTI I had it checked 2 days ago at her pcp ... She's 80 with Dx of Alzehemiers and dementia , she's a retired RN so I can't tell her anything . I'm a RN and she tells me she dosrnt need my advice ...omg .. the woman will not stop talking ... I'm gonna have to sleep with her talking all night ... Good grief I'm gonna go out of my mind ... At least then I won't notice her talking all night because I'll be to crazy to notice .. I'm starting her on melatonin ... Any one have any ideas how to stop my mom the chatter box ?

Just read your post and I am going through the same thing. How did you make out with the melatonin? I was wondering because the doctor said try melatonin or benadryl. She's up most of the day and night! Which makes her a high risk for falls, which is what's happening. I look forward to hearing how the melatonin is working for your mom.

There is nothing worse than needing - not just wanting in the ordinary way, but really *needing* - to get your sleep and not being able to. The stress is appalling. I wish I could help but I just wanted to sympathise anyway. I really hope you find good answers soon.

Let us know what the neuro says My mom is the same way the past couple of nights only she's mad at me as well as everyone else - we did a urine sample this afternoon but I'm afraid results won't be ready til after the weekend 😬

How much seroquel is she taking?
