My brother in law took MIL to the GP today because of her constant agitation & he has put her on haloperidol. I know this is a sedative, but I am worried now in case she gets unsteady on her pins with it, or even more disorientated. I also really wanted a re referral back to memory clinic for a up to date assessment. My sister in law has just rung to say she's spoken to her on the phone and she says she doesn't know when to take her new tablets or what they are for, when not half an hour before she was telling me what the doctor said and when she has to take them. Any opinions ?
