Your Mother is one smart Mom. I suspect 90% of patients, especially the elderly are on too much medicine. Seems doctors just want to add a pill instead of listening to patients.


Can I come to your mom for medical advise too. ?

The same exact thing happened to my mom when they prescribed those same medications. We got involved when my mom said the same thing as your mom said about hallucinations and not feeling like herself. Her kidney doctor finally got her medications straightened out.
The kidneys don't function as well when people age. Medications stay in a person's system longer because of that. Therefore,some medications are too strong or not well tolerated.
My mom will celebrate her 95th birthday in September. She spends a lot of time reading, and is doing well since they got her medications regulated. She is living with my sister.
