Mom is 89 w/ dimentia. She crys all the time, complains of itching scalp, back and arms. Creams only give temp relief, and I have tried them all. She takes Namenda and 75mg sertraline. Tried a higher dose of sert but had a bad reaction , slurred speech, restless, nervous, but didnt cry or itch.
She is sleeping alot and this seems to be the only time she is not crying. Also, recently had a cat scan because I thought she moght have had a stroke...scan ok.
Ant ideas as to what else could be going on?
