My Mother is 93 year old with Alzheimer's. What medications can help reduce her anxiety?
My mother is 93 years old with Alzheimer's. She is progressing from moderate to severe. Is there any drug that can reduce her anxiety? She is now refusing all pill medications.
You should try first non-pharmacological means to reduce anxiety of your mother. Try relaxing music, comfortable environment, lavender scent, etc. If that is not sufficient, it is possible to make a solution from anti-anxiety pills, such as Ativan. You need a pestle and mortar to grind a pill into fine powder and suspend that in milk or water. However, be careful because anti-anxiety medication may cause sedation, confusion and falls.
