Mixed medicine for a 74 year old female?
Added 5 Feb 2013:
We had to go get her from another because family members were miss treating her,we're not sure how to handle the issues with her.And my issue is that she takes all of the mess 3times a day and nothing at night and she is up and down all night moaning and wandering around begging for a breathing treatment 5mins.after she has had one.any ideas or suggestions would be helpful
I would try to get her to take the last diazepam and oxycodone doses as close to bedtime as possible. Is she sleeping all day and up all night? You may have to be the one to dole out the meds to her to keep her on a better schedule. What other medications is she taking? Does she have any memory issues/dementia?
