This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

Changes in Dad's medication...

The nursing home called me today, to inform me the Psychiatrist had been to visit Dad.  He will be increasing his anti-depressive medication.  He was taking Lexapro 15 mg one time a day, and now he will be getting 10mg two times a day.

Apparently after lunch he was yelling and having a tough time.  I wanted to speak with him, but he was sleeping.

His primary care doctor was in visiting Dad, checking on his leg.  He is going to order another Dopler test next week.

Can't believe next week is March already!!

I will try again tomorrow morning to talk with him...

Lexapro is a med that many of our residents are on, and it seems to be effective without side effects.
I'm glad they called you, instead of your Mom!
