Ativan 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.

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.
