My husband has been diagnosed with Alzheimers, although we have suspected for a while that he has been suffering from the disease. He has been prescribed Aricept 10 mg, and things seem to be slowing down, however he has bouts of rage, never physical, but verbal, over absolutely nothing. I usually end up in tears, and hate facing the neighbours.
Do you have the same experience, and if so, how do you cope with it ?
You have all my sympathy. My FIL used to fly into terrifying rages, again over nothing - they were so bad that I used to leave the house,taking the dog with me, since she would be very frightened. By the time I returned maybe 15 or 20 minutes later he would invariably have forgotten, and would often be tearful instead. Must be so infinitely worse to witness when it's your husband.
Our incidents were ages ago and the GP was utterly useless -just shrugged and said there was nothing he could do - but I do think there is so much more help med-wise now. Do please see your GP and tell him exactly how it is, at its worst.
I do hope you get some help soon.
