My primary mentioned using Ablilify,but not much has been said about it being used in dementia patients.Anyone know anything?I have cut my Seroquel 25mg in half taking it twice a week,it's still too much.Makes me feel not quite like a zombie,lol.
While I'm still driving I refuse to take anything that will hamper my driving.

SnowyLynne...............The indications mentioned on the site for this med is for bipolar and schiophrenia(sp).The info cleary states not to be used in patients with dementia,may cause greater memory loss.........increased chance of strokes and mini strokes.I hope this helps you .You take care and God Bless

He's just a family practioner.That's why I have a Neurologist,lol.
They are using many meds.as crossover meds.for different diseases.I know it's for Bi-polar & schitzo.But so is most of the Antipsychotics.

The Serroquel or Ablilify is the one that shouldn't be used?

Respirdal is a scary drug. My son now jerks at night because of this drug. If you can take anything else, do it!
