Hi, my mother is 64 with advanced early onset dementia. She is still living at home but we have carers in from 8am till 9pm to help my father. Although suffering enormously with dementia, she is also very depressed and on days will be low all day with hardly a smile. She has tried many anti depressants which i feel just don't work. She has just come off prozac and started on amitryptiline (not sure of spelling) but i don't see any improvement. The doctors are now talking about electric shock treatment to her brain as an option. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience of this. It can make you very confused after treatment but she is so confused anyway, i'm wondering if it could be worse? Does anyone have any advice on this subject as it sounds quite horrific to me...... Thank you.
