My husband can be alert and able to make decisions one minute and confused and talking crazy the next. We are in a bad stage right now. When he is confused he states that he isn't and gets mad. The doctor diagnosed him with Dementia and put him on Aricpet, Senemet and Exelon. He went to a follow up a few months back and the doctor said that he was so alert and doing so well that he did not think that he had dementia (hello....isn't the meds supposed to help the decrease the symptoms). So I get upset and leave and go to the car and husband comes down later and tells me that the doctor says he can stop the meds. He stops the Exelon and actually was doing okay off of it, but still taking Aricept 10mg. I reduced it to 5mg and he started falling apart, and wants it increased again. So he calls the doctor and has it increased and when we go back in a month he will being doing better because of the increase and then doctor will not see what is really going on. He has my 17 year old daughter in tears all the time, he is angry one minute, happy the next. What do I do in regards to the doctor, husband is lucid enough that he refuses to see another doctor because he likes what this one is saying. He is going around saying that the doctor says he does not have Dementia. I am about to lose it, I do not know how much more I can take of this. Do I take him off all of the meds, without him knowing it and then take him back to the doctor? To me this will show the doctor what we are dealing with. But if I do take him off the meds we can not leave him alone or barely live with him. OMG......this is a nightmare.
