Are there better medications for Alzheimer's patients?
Are there any anti-anxiety medications for Alzheimer's patients with Lewy body dementia that are in the moderate stage and having hallucinations, paranoia and agitation issues that do not leave the patients just wiped out?
Anti-anxiety medications would probably not help somebody who has paranoia and hallucinations. Treatment of these conditions requires use of antipsychotics to which individuals with Lewy bodies dementia are very sensitive. Therefore, it is important to use very low doses and medications with fewer side-effects, such as quetiapine (Seroquel).
