I hope you don’t mind me asking, but what medication did the GP recommend?I don't know if it shows different symptoms in different people, but Hubby would start saying he was cold, felt ill and had pain all over, at the same time every evening. I had a feeling it was anxiety, maybe being frightened of not knowing or recognising anxiety. I got in touch with the dementia nurse and he arranged for anti anxiety medication for Hubby..GP didn't have a clue. The medication has really helped. Thank you Nurse
Sorry so late, GP sent sleeping tablets, but when I read the side effects I didn't give them to him, the alzheimer's nurse said I was right, they would make him more confused and unsteady..he had already fallen a couple of times at night. We started with 30mg Mirtazapine at bedtime, which helped a little with his sleep then was given 25mg of Trazodone to take at tea time, which helped him relax a bit more in the evening. We still have a few episodes, but only when he has stressed about something..visitors or having to go somewhere that's not in the norm. Hope it helps. My best wishes to youI hope you don’t mind me asking, but what medication did the GP recommend?
