Hello all..How is everyone doing?..Sorry I haven`t posted recently but have had a zillion things going on...My mothers doctor changed her medication today from Nameda to something called Risperdal M-Tab...I read the little paper that came with it and it sounds like exactly the same thing to me...Has anyone else had any experience with this drug?...Otherwise mom is fairly calm..Gets aggrevated ond disoriented sometimes..Seems to happen more when my brother is around and directing her every move or questioning her about every move....Nephew still doesn`t seem capable of understanding she has a serious medical problem and tells her she "has to learn to wait" or "remember the next time"..Oy

I have had this medication and it was for sleeping I am not sure if used for anxiety but I will do a check for you

Maybe suggest Aricept or Razadyne
Snowy was on both and there is another Namenda I believe
YOUR nephew needs to be away from her I and others think he is causing more problems than helping

  I know..Unfortunately the whole bunch of them are pretty dizzy..But my brother is attempting to keep mom here at home and my nephew is the only one who can stay home all day with her..Otherwise she`d have to be left alone all day and half the night..Oy..I think I may have to look into some sort of public assisted place for her but I don`t know what sort of care one can expect in those places

Resperidol is a antipsychotic not an antidepressant
