My Dad was prescriped antipsychotics about 5 weeks ago having very suddenly developed aggressive behaviour at his care home. He immediately calmed down and at the 6 week review meeting with the care home staff and social worker last week I was told this would be kept under review and the drugs would be gradually withdrawn if he stabilised. I visited on Saturday and he was almost back to where he had been before he was prescribed the drugs. He was back in "escape" mode, didn't acknowledge me other than to demand for money for the bus fare home, and was really unpleasant - swearing etc, though not physically aggressive. Are such ups and downs "normal"? Surely the whole point of the drugs is to make him more manageable - he certainly wasn't on Saturday. The care home are expecting me to take him out once a week - but there is no way I can do this when he is in this mood. Any advice welcome.
