Hello, My question is, are there other medications than neuroleptics to treat Alzheimer aggression with less side effects? (Not increasing mortality for example) fter a lot of stressful years we decided to bring our father to a nursing home because we couldn't handle him anymore (Especially the nights). They gave him antipsychotics for a short time but we were not happy with that idea because of all the bad side effects like higher mortality and increasing cognitive decline. Also we saw that cognitive side got worse over that period. But now he started to show aggression (probably had this to do with the toilet) towards the nursing stuff and they want to give him neuroleptics (Quetiapin/Seroquel) again. But isn't there an other solution for this situation? We don't want him to die earlier because of the medications. He is only 70 years old (First signs of Alzheimer started probably 8-9 years ago) And if there is no other solution, we probably would take him home again. Also how safe is the use of Benzodiazepine to handle sleep disorders of a Person with dementia? Is it as bad as the neuroleptics? Thank you for your answers.
