Actiq Mental Status Changes Causes and Reviews


Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia among older people. Dementia is a brain disorder that seriously affects a person's ability to carry out daily activities.

AD begins slowly. It first involves the parts of the brain that control thought, memory and language. People with AD may have trouble remembering things that happened recently or names of people they know. A related problem, mild cognitive impairment (MCI), causes more memory problems than normal for people of the same age. Many, but not all, people with MCI will develop AD.

In AD, over time, symptoms get worse. People may not recognize family members. They may have trouble speaking, reading or writing. They may forget how to brush their teeth or comb their hair. Later on, they may become anxious or aggressive, or wander away from home. Eventually, they need total care. This can cause great stress for family members who must care for them.

AD usually begins after age 60. The risk goes up as you get older. Your risk is also higher if a family member has had the disease.

No treatment can stop the disease. However, some drugs may help keep symptoms from getting worse for a limited time.

Actiq Mental Status Changes Reviews

Fri, 20 Aug 2010
My mom, aged 77, just completed her 3rd ipi infusion Wed 8/18. It started in her lungs. Brain metastisis with removal of one tumor June 9, 2010. 4-5 small tumors still. She's not 100% mentally alert, but she tells us the pain from the tumors on her upper thign feel like blistering sunburn. She has not been eating lately, only drinking boost. Her oncologist is treating the pain on her legs wtih lidocaine patches and that seems to help. She also has a fentanyl patch on her arm and uses Actiq 'lollipops's for pain control.
