Ativan Agitation Causes and Reviews


Caring for someone who has Alzheimer's disease (AD) can be stressful and overwhelming. It's important to take care of yourself. Ask for and accept help.

Talk to the doctor. Find out what treatments might help control symptoms or address behavior problems. Find a support group. Others who have "been there" may be able to help and will understand.

If there are times of day that the person is less confused or more cooperative, take advantage of that in daily routines. Consider using adult day care or respite services. These offer a break with the peace of mind that the patient is being taken care of. Begin to plan for the future. This may include

  • Getting financial and legal documents in order
  • Looking into assisted living or nursing homes
  • Finding out what your health insurance and Medicare will cover

does valium cause afib?

Sun, 17 Oct 2010

What I have been exsperiencing is when I want to go to sleep I start having vivid confusing images that don't make sense. I will be thinking about my day then a thought like eating ice cream and cake will pop in my mind and I never ate ice cream and cake that day. Once my brain picks up on that my heart races and I think where did that thought come from since it was so vivid. It scares me so then I am afraid to go to sleep thinking I'm losing my mind or something. Should I just let me mind think what it wants after all I am just going to sleep. But it freaks me out.

I was having bad dreams and anxiety attacks (My Mom was murdered in 2005). I started drinking to calm my nerves, but decided to quit alcohol. I was told by a nurse that quiting "Cold Turkey" could be dangerous, so I went to see the doctor at the University. He prescribed Lorazepam and sent me home with instructions. He said that since he did not have hospital privileges, I should take the medication and wean off alcohol at home. A couple weeks later, I "woke up" in jail. I had apparently been sleepdriving, but I have no memory of the experience.
