My mom was diagnosed with vascular dementia almost 2 years ago. Her Neuro put her on Cymbalta immediately for the anxiety. We tried Depakote but she became more agitated.Now her neuro has put her on Seroquel now. I asked Neuro if we could take her off both meds and she said Seroquel or memory care were the only options. I am not sure what to do, she has declined so quickly since being on the Cymbalta I think it may be causing some of the symptoms. I understand dementia symptoms are different for all patients but it seem the misidentification generally occurs at the latter stages of the disease and my mom is in the mid-stages and still able to care for herself. It is extremely difficult to take her off the Cymbalta. Any advise?
