My father seemed to have got past the stage of been up & down all night & aggressive but after being found on the floor last Wednesday morning & the GP has stopped some of his tablets amytriptelene for example that was keeping him calm,instead of gradually reducing the so he's now awake & aggressive tonight instead of sleeping, my mothers in tears & I feel like pulling my hair out as I could end up having a seizure.

So sorry, dawnee to hear this :(

It doesn't sound like you can can all carry on like this. Have you contacted the GP again to explain and ask for a review of the situation?

All the best :)
