We took my mom off the meds
It's all trial and erro, medications have diffrent side effect we never know till we try them ... Talk to her Doctor. ..
I have Alzheimer's and I gave up on the meds- they were ruining the little quality-of-life I still have. Now I only take one pill at night-time to help me sleep.
My husband takes none and is doing well and is happy.
We used medications when we really had to to help with anxiety and to help her sleep. Low does. Just treating symptoms to make her more comfortable. couldn’t find any medical studies saying other medications worked.
This all sounds like it makes a lot of sense! The natural formulas of coconut oil, lions mane mushroom, i am giving her seem to work better..I am also taking the Lions Mane Mushroom. it is giving me more clarity in my thinking. The Neuroplex I am giving my wife is absolutely wonderful. I can see a difference when she forgets to take it, and when she forgets to take it.
Keep a journal . It is very hsrd to tell because wheb the brain is literally being disintegrated the control center for thinking is disabled . Always look up medication name online to see variances . Anxiety , anger are issues that must be helped by medication . Those medications should never be " just stopped " but tapered off . When you know she is comfortable , eating ok , using bathroom ok and sleeping well remember this is a long journey and be thankful for the good . If you have not baby proofed the home you should . This disease can change in a heartbeat and it is important to understand this . Good days , not so good days . Constant supervision . Do not allow her to drive or take walks alone . Keep with this group and find your local group. It can make a huge difference.
Took my mom off namenda when our pharmacist said if she goes off it the only thing you’ll notice is more money in her checking account. She’s much better without. Each person has to evaluate for them self’s. Dr’s are only practicing medicine.
Glad you ckd with pharmacist !!
Have you tried CBD oil? Working wonders for our mom. Melatonin too! The meds were awful for her.
How much CBD oil? And how often do u think?
