MY mother is 98 and currently taking Mirtazapine on retiring and given low dose Lorazapam when agitated. I wonder how this has affected others with similar positions. Mother remains lethargic currently. Strangely, she was quite lucid several days ago and seemingly showed little anxiety or stress. Such is the nature of this wretched affliction. Up until about ten days ago, she climbed our stairs and walked with a 'walker' to and from the hairdresser and interacted there sensibly. How quickly can things change?? Mixed dementia with Alzheimer's was the label. One would almost pray for a bad hip, rather than any of this. Truly, a wicked thing.
