Please excuse my rambling. I’m so tired 😩.
My mom resides in a healthcare facility. Her doctor was asked about using Claritin for her runny nose. He ordered one tablet of over the counter Claritin given to her every day. It’s still really bad, so much so she at times doesn’t know her nose is running. Also what causes all the saliva build up in her mouth?
She also has issues with “pocketing her food". Before her fall (broke her femur), resulted in a mild stroke, blood clot in leg (it was caught) and early stages of dementia, her nose would run but not this bad.
I’d appreciate your thoughts, information, and suggestions regarding this & what to do or next!
