My 86 year old grandmother was given Seroquel in the hospital to help her calm down and sleep at night. (She takes 1/2 of 25mg pill - and does not have dementia or Alzheimer's) I am concerned because this drug can be dangerous for the elderly.
Hello nc80slady. I understand your concern. But given the dose, all be your grandmother 86 years of age, she should be fine. I know a bit about the drug itself, although I'm only in my sixties, was on it for several years as a sleeping medication. I might suggest you might see if its at all possible, how she does in the morning hours. How alert and actually active she is say, compared to her behaviour before taking the Seroquel. Hopefully, someone else will answer your question that has a loved one in thier senior years taking the drug. Best wishes, pledge
