Hi My mum who has moderate to severe Alzheimer's, is currently presenting with Akthesia, being driven to walk endlessly, then getting on an off the bed after literally a few seconds rest each time. It is absolutely constant and driven.... She is exhausting herself with the constant motion, starts off standing up straight but gradually leans over or back or forward til she is holding herself at a terrible angle, presumably because of exhaustion. Before this set in, she was a pacer, but the intensity of the current phase seems quite different to me. I am concerned that this might be caused by the antipsychotic medications and the tranquilisers, though the GP thinks not (and presumably the consultant has also considered and rejected this possibility). It would be so terrible if this awful tormented behaviour was caused by the drugs given to alleviate anxiety and agitation.... does anyone have an experience of this?
