Give me a shout if I can help.
I suffer from depression. During my last hospitalization the new dr that treated me prescribed Deplin. It is not an anti-depressant. It is the only form of folic acid that crosses the blood brain barrier. Dietary supplements cannot do this. With all her health issues and medications and her age she is no doubt able to get this necessary supplement to her brain. It helped me tremendously. It is relatively new. Go to www.deplin. com. Research it then ask her dr if she can try it. It is prescription only but not a drug, just folic acid, a dietary supplement. God Bless you both.
I lost my very sickly mom 5 years ago, even though she needed a lot of care from me I would to double of what I did if I could only have her back
