My father is on 12 or more medications for high blood pressure, heart, cholesterol and stroke related issues. Many of these he has been on for years but some (Lasix, potassium, Exelon patch) are more recent. I know he reacts badly to anesthesia drugs (confused, angry) and I'm wondering if his "regular" drugs aren't "causing" some other mild dementia issues as well.
You did not mention the age of your father. My 86 year old father in law is under medication for hypertension, heart problem, cholesterol, incontinence, emphysema and we haven't seen sign of dementia. In fact these med prevent further brain damage due to strokes and heart disease. Is he with constant companion or left alone by himself? Though he can't go out of the house without assistance, my father in law has constant companion, a son. He has poor eyesight due to cataract but his hearing is still good.
