... seems to me that it's too much meds for Dementia, she can't talk much, she is having temper tantrums and can't sleep. Anyone have an idea? She definately has had Dementia for awhile and it could be going into Alzheimers but I'm not so sure Drug interactions is not to blame for her not being able to eat with a fork only fingers and her balance and tantrums lately.

She may be over medicated. I checked on the drug interactions, and when combining these drugs, may cause physical instability. It also warns not to eat or drink grapefruit juice. Sorry I couldn't help more. Is she under supervision?
Good luck to you and I hope your mom does ok. Does she have a Health Advocate you can talk to?
