I need some input please.
I was informed today by my mother's nursing home that due to Mom's increased aggression towards other residents in her nursing home, we either have to start her immediately on the drug Neurontin and get her aggression under control, or she will have to be moved to a psychiatric hospital. Last Friday, they also told me that she has "Sundown Syndrome."
IS there anything else, some other method, some other way, some other drug?? She has congestive heart failure and the info I have seen on this drug, Neurontin, indicates it isn't recommended for patients with heart conditions.
I feel like they are rushing me. Like I have been given an ultimatum, "do this or else!" And I don't think it is the best option for her!!
Thank you for any information you are kind enough to share.
