Hi I am new to Talking Point and wonder if anyone has found any medication effective for sundowning, the phenomena of Alzheimers becoming increasingly agitated and anxious as the evening goes on. I care for my 89 year old mum who is on an anxiety medication called Gerax. She is calmer during the day since being on the tablets but there is no change in the 5pm onwards constant questioning and anxiety. My husband and I try to get some time to chat together upstairs in the evening after about 7pm but she is constantly pacing around downstairs, sighing and calling out "is there anyone there" and that she wants to ask a question. Since her reading is still good we use orientation notes on the walls downstairs to show her where different rooms are and to say she lives with us. Thankfully when she goes to bed (about 8.30pm) she sleeps well til mid morning.
