My 84 yr old mother with dementia has terrible anxiety & most likely depression as she'll either burst out in tears for no reason or will tell me that she feels close to tears but doesn't know why. Her doc put her on Seroquel 100mg but I was suspecting it was *causing* more issues than it's curing & now I'm convinced it is. She's been on 50mg, it's not really doing much for her anxiety & tearfulness & she gets REALLY loopy after taking it. I've tried bumping her to the 100mg to see if the anxiety & tears will decrease but she gets SO confused that she doesn't make ANY sense at all. For the past 3 nights I haven't given the Seroquel and, while she still sundowns a little, it's *definitely* not as bad as when she takes the Seroquel. Ativan seems to help with the anxiety but, of course, isn't helpful for the tearfulness/depression. Secondly, her doc is less than willing to prescribe Ativan as a routine dose. She tried Zoloft but that gave her diarrhea so bad that she was messing her pants. Any suggestions of meds that have worked for you guys that I can ask her doc to try?
