My mom has Alzheimer's 3 days ago her memory starting get real bad..she is seeing things,she shakes when she is sleeping like she is trying to grab something..she asking for people that are not here no more..doctor said that she is in stage 7...she has been on norco for 2 weeks because of pain..could this been doing this or is it the Alzheimer's..they are saying that she could be dehydrated..worried daughter..
so eventually a single dose becomes a mega dose - this was how it was explained to me by a doctor when I asked why my parents had such a strong reaction to morphine. The doctor also said some pain meds are more easily processed than others - so again, as Churchmouse suggests - talk to a doctor, there may be a better pain med to fit your mothers need.
I've seen her hallucinate from severe dehydration
She gets xtra agitated when she has a UTI
