Depression and dementia


Registered User
Jan 9, 2016
My mother has early-mid stages of Altzeimers but her main problem is depression.

She is on the highest dose of Mirtazipine but it doesn't seem to be touching her depression. Can anyone suggest either a different drug that might help, or anything else I can do to help alleviate this distressing side effect of memory loss.

My mothers mobility is also poor so she cannot easily walk or exercise to help with this
