Hi Its been a very stressfull last fortnight. My mother hasn't really been the cause but the wheels of care have sprung into action. I should be gratefull, as I asked for help and am getting it. However I've found it more stressfull dealing with DSS and esp. Mental health team. Mum has a carer for one hour a day so far, not that she does much but its difficult for the carer - still early days. I hope when she settles in she will be able to help my mum wash. Because of my Mum's wandering she has been prescribed antipsychotics (Amisulpride 50mg daily). She still wants to go out but now gets more tired easily. However I reported that she got really angry an hour after taking the new medicine twice. The Doctor (not her GP) increased the dose to 100mg, I find this odd. Its 12 days now she has taken the 50mg and only day on 100mg. She has got v.angry with my wife a couple of times and she has never done before - or is it my wife has radical new hair-style and she doesn't recognise her? What I find odd is the M.H.T visit every day, always someone different and in pairs to introduce a new member of the team. To see if she has taken the medicine. I find this stressfull as they might say we will be there at 2pm but turn up 1.30-2.30 all the time I'm trying to keep my mum in. Then they try and get mum to take the tablet. Mum doesn't like all these people coming round. It just seems too fishy! With Aricipt (about a year) and now 2 doses of 50mg its much harder to get her to take them and I'm not sure if they are benefiting her? One day I think so the other not. However, its the wrong attitude I know but I feel I'm in a war with them and they will win as there are more of them. It was supposed to make my life easier but now I don't have any mornings to work from home as I'll have to meet social worker/Admiral nurses (only once to be fair) and mental health team ringing daily. My gut reaction is they must be paid if they visit and my mum is an easy visit. Sometimes when they are "ganging up" on her to take the tablet and patronising me - I really want to kick them out of the house, mum would probably enjoy this . I'll be honest and I'm struggling not to lose my temper with them. The only think stopping me is that one day I might need their help - section possibly. Anybody have experience with this drug? I'm sure it varries person to person. On the other stuff its just good to get it off my chest.
