Oh . . . good Lyn . . . maybe we'll keep this one bumped up or have Peter include it with the Alzheimer's resources.

Thanks for the heads up on Ativan/lorazepam!

Blessings!

Hi Lyn,

My son's wedding was on Saturday and I spent the day with Dad today, so things have been pretty busy here. I hope to join you in chat Wednesday, but it will depend on how hectic things are that evening. Will be there if I can.

Blessings!

Medication can cause ( wrong Meds) the person to show worse signs and become easily aggitated and more confused IMHO

Aricept for memory retention is the most common medicine for Alzheimer's. But as the disease progresses, there is a behavioral changes with Alzheimers. They become restless and agitated. This is the time that Ativan or Lorazepam is given. but it must be as needed. Some doctors prescribed Seroquel or Zyprexa to control their behavior, to calm them down especially if they have sundown syndrome and these will keep them quiet.

What I mean to keep quiet is exactly what you're thinking. They become totally out of reality. They stop talking, walking, and just looking on a blank wall. They a re quiet the whole day. They say it's part of t he disease. but this happen after taking those powerful medications.

I know they should not be given this medications. They become worst and vegetable. What they need is love and compassion. Patience and understanding.
