Hi Jessbow, Yes its myself being attacked sometinmes out of the blue The trigger something small I am reading to much to much T.V sometimes helping choose clothes when going out the nearest item is picked op to lash out i.e tea tray remote control library book any thing handy. not to often I am glad to say, also punching and kicking and use of nails. Such is life,is it you that is being attacked? walk away until the other person is calm, fix a bolt to the inside of a bedroom door and make sure your mobile phone is handy and charged at all times.
Keep yourself safe at all times.
How often is it happening and to what severity? Is there a trigger?
I second this. MIL is much less likely to kick or shove or throw things since she has been on Memantine as well as Aricept.Talk to your loved one's doctor (the psychiatrist or GP) or Mental health nurse too. It's just possible that tweaking the medication a bit could control the violence. My Mum was less violent and less often violent after her medication was tweaked.
