My 94-year old mother lives with mid-stage Alzheimer's disease. Her condition is characterized by memory loss, confusion as to time and place, and heightened anxiety. To this point, I have have had some success in controlling her anxiety behaviorally. But I am wondering if she would be better served with a low dose of an anti-anxiety medication. I hesitate to introduce atypical anti-psychotic like Seroquel or Resperd due to their attendant risks and because their use would be off-label. I don't want to turn mom into a zombie either. Has anyone had any experience with these or other drugs used to treat Alzheimer's anxiety? Would it be better to just continue my behavioral approach until it no longer works?
