hi thanks for getting back to me, i would like to ask is this going to make his dementia worse in any way, he is with a dr who specialises in dementia she is a consultant physician thank you
It would help the depression. Does he see a dr that specializes in care of people with dementia? It might help him sleep, but its main use is that of an anti depressant. The suicide ideation is in the beginning when its first started, before it works for the depression. I have several patients with dementia on it now.
