I noticed he was acting very different, no personality, not answering phone, completely different from 2 weeks before.
So I got a listing of his medications and they had added 2 alzheimers meds (he doesn't have alzheimers), a diuretic, an anti-histimine (which he is allergic to codeine and his body reacts badly to allergy meds), also they added an allergy med, (they were trying to dry up a chronic nose drip) they also added vicodin ( his body reacts badly to this). He already is on 20 medications! and now they added these within a 2 weak period. He is like a dead man.
Now I have to wait for them to get in contact with the doctor to remove the meds and they are fighting me on it.
It is like they are determined that he have alzheimers. He has some problems with thinking when he first wakes up and because he is on so many meds. Also he has problems when his sugar get really LOW. Otherwise he is as clear and sharp as I am.
I am not in denial. His mental problems are related to his medications and his depression over his now sucky life.
I could have kept him off all these latest meds if I had known they were being added. They did not tell me anything except
"your dad is a very sick man" (diabetes 77) as an excuse.
My dad is a resident in a VA Home.
