I hope it will. William was prescribed quetiapine first, and his dose was increased twice, but it had no effect on his hallucinations at all.That really is good news, in that the doctor quickly summed things up. It will take a while for the quetiapine to take effect but it should improve your mum's quality of life. My mother was on it for quite a long time without any adverse effects that we were aware of.
It is odd, isn't it? I find it strange that she says that "I know they're not really there, but it's so hard to convince myself of that." Which makes me wonder if the issue is, in fact, her eyes. The Orthoptist said mum needs to look at things head on, because her sight distortion is much worse when she's looking to the side, particularly to the right. And the hallucinations she's seeing are usually to her side.
she could see faces on the cushions
They're plain mostly, although one or two do have a pattern. The pattern thing is something I'm watching though, because it certainly seems that things like shadowy areas (under tables etc. ) are where she's seeing things mostly (although last week, mum "saw" a whole row of people sitting along the curtain pole).I get distorted vision like that @LadyA In my case it isn`t until I get close up to an object that I realise what it really is. Of course in my case I realise it`s distorted vision so no harm done.
My grandmother was in hospital and thought the large flowers on the screens round her bed were faces watching her.
Are the cushions plain or patterned?
