Hi, this is my first post on here. My dad has LBD and he is currently in hospital but I visit him every day with my mum so am heavily involved in his care etc. It's just a small question I have really, my dad is very heavily sedated as he was so aggressive towards staff. However, when he is 'asleep' he often mimes eating and drinking and we take this as a sign that he is hungry or thirsty and proceed to give him food and drinks which he readily accepts. I have often come into the hospital to be told he has been hallucinating a lot, but when I ask about the hallucinations the kind of things they're talking about are the scenario I've just described. To me, that's not hallucinating...but what would others say? The doctor told us yesterday that they're increasing his quetiapine (anti-psychotic) to help with the hallucinations, however, I find it hard to believe that hallucinations are a real problem anymore as they seem so insignificant and they are not really harmful to dad or anyone else...well, that's my perspective anyway. I am worried about them increasing this kind of medication as it obviously comes with risks itself. I could understand if dad was hallucinating for a lot of the day and becoming aggressive with it, but to be honest, he isn't. He's asleep for most of the day now and when he does have awake time, he's more confused than anything and will just try to move furniture about, but not in an aggressive way. I just wonder whether the doctor has read staff notes that say dad has been hallucinating (miming eating/drinking) and therefore has made the decision to increase his meds. Does anyone else have experience of this miming/hallucinating in their loved ones?
