My husband is battling the hallucinations big time and I am trying to keep him "in touch with reality" - so far so good - but he spends 8-l0 hours per day alone at the house and they are really starting to get to him. By the way, we call them our "h"aints" (hallucinations that "aint't" there) - he just went through two months of a Seroquel study by Baylor and after it all, the seroquel only made him fall way more, so we are now going to have to try something else. Seems these drugs are a real "roulette" kind of game......
We've been trying to counter the oncoming hallucinations since starting on the agonists, etc, etc, about 3 yr. ago.....hope the upcoming Zyprexa will do the trick....... Also, he never sees them away from home either and sometimes we just take a trip to town to "get away" but lately they have shown up in the van a time or two..... The mental changes are what is scariest to us about the whole situation but he said he would still rather endure the "haints" instead of the falling..... so glad to hear the Seroquel is working for your PWP.....
As you all know by now, my wife’s Hellucination and Paranoia got so bad that I was contemplating throwing her to the lions during a safari trip we were on. I felt bad for the lions so I didnt do it!!!!!
Instead I sicked her on her movement disorder therapist through which she eventually had three ElectroShockTherapy treatments.
This together with a daily total of 400mg of Serequel and 150mg of CloZoril has eliminated the problem 99%. That combination also substantially reduced the agressive dreaming which included sudden bone chilling screaming and then hysterical laffing. (what a combination) I guess she thought her nightmares were funny!!!
I softly stopped her screaming but allowed the laffing... after all what would you prefer at 0430 in the morning!!!
Seriously though, I found that too much sinemet causes hallucinations.
It's weird to me that she only saw them at home.
