Mum is midway in her 28day section and they are still assessing. Very unpredicatble and complex, and now the suggestion that they are thinking of antipsychotics. Mum has tried these before, a few years ago whilst living at home with us, with poor results and causing problems with mobility - she began to walk doubled over having to walk ever faster to compensate. I was unwilling to up the dose any further due to these side effects, so am not too happy that they could be tried again, especially since we suspect Lewy Body. Has anyone any experience on this please?
