Well.. we started dad on his new meds on Thursday of last week (Mematine).. and it has been utter hell. His usual anxiety (the reason we changed from Aricept) was multiplied to the point where he though my poor mum was trying to kill him. He's ranted daily since Thursday about her tryng to set fire to the house, poison him etc.. he got so bad yesterday that the OT and mental health nurse advised us to stop with the memantine. I'm hoping today he is better. He was slurring his words yesterday- was very red in the face, and so confused.
Has anyone else experienced these symptoms whilst on memantine?
The mental health nurse thinks dad may have suffered a decline in the illness on Weds n(due to another incident which happened early hours) and she thinks the new meds exaggerated that.
