Mom will get on something - as you guys know - the "I want to live alone!" and WILL NOT DROP IT. I can say hey, look at those flowers! (she loves flowers) or "shall we go out for dinner tonight?" She will grumble "I don't care" and nothing I do gets her off that ramped up track.
She is taking NO anxiety meds. Just Buspar and Lexapro - which both agree with her fine she's been on them for awhile.
But this agitation and anxiety is getting over the top and I can't redirect it anymore. Tomorrow we are to see the doctor. Any anti-anxiety meds work for anyone who has a mom like mine? she has vascular dementia...
I was told to look into Ativan and Klonopin... something that will stay in the system awhile for anti-anxiety. any success from any of you with any of those? or other suggestions for the dr? He's been treating her now for 1 year and even though she is neurotic, he's still not given her anything anti-anxiety yet... it's so overdue.
