My dad has been on aracept for almost 2 years. My mum is caring for him, with support from my sister and me. Just this last 4 weeks, he has become very restless, and he was put on some medication to sedate him. The nurse who he sees every six months, our only contact with the hospital, arranged for him to go on a sedative. After a week, he became more active, and very aggresive with my mum, even slightly violent. He couldn't settle. When he was in the house, he wanted to go out, when he was out he wanted to go home - continuously. My sister and I can't give mum a rest because he wont stay at our house, and when we take him out he is asking for her all the time. When he saw her he was abusive. The nurse spoke to the doctor and the sedative was changed. He is now on Halypurin. The dose has been increased slowly, and the last two nights he has wet the bed, which is more strain on mum. The doctor wants to admit him to hospital to give mum a rest, and to stabilise the medication. I would like him to stay at home because I think that he might deteriorate even more in hospital, and we have been told that the medication takes time to work. He as been on the Halypurin for almost two weeks. Any advice?
