Hi everyone....well....Dad has been in the n/h since March 29....seems to have gone downhill since.....they had him on Aricept.....lost his appetite completely....put him on remeron to calm him down and increase the appetite...not doing it..........seems like all he does now is sleeps and when he is awake is very combative...........barely audible when he speaks........I think he needs different meds cuz the remeron is not doing it for him....seems more depressed than before (if that's possible with what's supposed to be an antidepressent).......anyone have a loved one on a drug that would make him more like himself and calm down the combativeness?  confused Thank you for whatever info you can give me........love to all who are taking this journey with their loved ones.

Welcome
Dad was on Namenda and it helped with the arguments and the aggression as well as his appetite
You should really speak with a neurologist to see what the best course of meds would be
Is anyone geting him up to exercise ......do Range of Motion.....keep his mind busy??

I wish you all the best and plz do email me if you would like to yak about things more
