For several years before MW was put on medication she was very aggressive, both verbally and physically, but after being given Respiridone and memantine she has been much calmer. She was diagnosed with Alzeimers and this was the reason for the medication. At the beginning MW was seen by a psychiatrist who made the diagnosis but we saw very little of him after this and he refused to visit before he moved to another post. His place was taken by a second doctor who agreed to visit after I insisted that he come. He did visit for thirty minutes and at the end decided that MW should come off Respiridone. I did this and the result was that MW one again reverted to being very disturbed. After a call to the doctor he agreed that the Respiridone should be reinstated. I feel that psychiatrists really have no real idea about the real condition of their patients as they only see them on odd occasions. Sorry about the rant but I have had to deal with the fall out from the decision by the psychiatrist and as you know we could do without this.
