My Dad is up a lot during the night, wandering and yelling, trying to hold up the walls, etc. He'll be that way every two or three nights, along with his sundowning in the evenings, giving my Mom very little sleep. The doctor today decided to stop the Seroquel that Dad has been taking AM and PM, and put him on a 5mg tablet of Zyproxa to start. He hopes that this will be a way to keep him awake more during the day, to expend what energy he might have, and calm him down at night so he'll sleep or at least not be as disruptive as he has been. He doesn't want to just add a med and keep him doped up like a zombie, which we agree with. Has anyone had experience with this med? My husband said its something in the same range as Valium and is used to calm people down. Would like any feedback anyone might have!
