This Week's Carenote


Is anyone out there that can recommend something I can ask my loved one’s doctor about concerning medication to recommend for sundowning? Is there something I can give him over the counter? Is there something I can give him to calm his nerves, hallucinations, anxiety or inability to sleep?

The ONLY person you should be asking for medical advice in this situation is your loved one's DOCTOR. No one else knows what medications are best and which ones may conflict with medications now being taken. Please don't rely on the general public for advice. That could do more harm than good.
