Granny is having a very bad day so is everyone else. She was up most of the night and early in the morning and had accidents resulting in a lot of poo trampled around everywhere and smeared on surfaces. Accidents happen so my parents and I were ok about cleaning it all up and putting her back to bed several times in the night but she has been being absolutely vile today, which really is rubbing salt in the wound/s! She normally has a rest in the afternoon (I have her to look after by myself some week days) but got up a minute ago and is still being very aggressive but my Mum gave her 1mg diazepam. My uncle is a doctor and said that we should give her diazepam rather than her prescribed lorazepam because lorazepam is much stronger. (Previously I have given her 1/4 tablet of lorazepam on 2 occasions when she was trying to knock the front door down to escape at night). Does anyone know if diazepam is ok for VaD? I read on one medical site that it's best avoided and lorazepam is better and faster acting. 1mg is a very low dose of diazepam so I'm not sure how well it will work!
