You need to discuss this with his GP and the Memory clinic if you still go. There are medications which can help but his other conditions need to be considered. Recently members have also discussed how giving two paracetamol given at bedtime seems to relax and calm some people who might have underlying pain or discomfort.

My husband has a bad knee and I have tried this once or twice and it seems to help.
