We had suspected Mum had dementia for the last five years but she seemed to be managing ok. Then she had a stroke in August and while in hospital she was diagnosed with vascular dementia. This was confused by also having a urine infection. The doctor put her on respiridone, an antipyschotic, as she was having distressing hallucinations. She is still on it four months later and it seems to be making no difference and Mum is deteriorating. She has had several more urine infections, is extremely agitated and has had a number of falls. Does anyone have any experience of this drug?
