Hi can anyone enlighten me on their experiences with the affects of paracetamol and lewy body dementia. I have read some forums on this sight regarding an article some time ago in the 'daily telegraph' and it appears it was discovered by accident that it controls anxiety and aggression in Alzheimer's. The person I am currently caring for (I will not release any personal details, in respect of the 'data protection act' and the individual) has lewy body dementia and recently has had so much arthritic pain the doctor has prescribed liquid paracetamol but there has been a sudden change in the persons pattern, and the affect of the paracetamol appears to suddenly drain all energy from the person, almost like being intoxicated, and more confused making cognitive ability, and response very poor, and the person lethargic roughly a 50% drop in cognition. I am not sure at this point but it would appear also the persons hallucinations have increased and sleep pattern more disrupted. I am new at this sight as of today, I am a carer studying dementia. Can anyone share or help me with this? I look forward to reading your reply's.
