Post Kampo Therapy
Has anyone had experience with Kampo therapy? Yokukan-san or Yi-Gan San? "Because of their safety profile, Kampo medicines are recommended for patients who have difficulties with treatments involving antipsychotic medicines, including those patients who are intolerant of treatment with antipsychotic medicines, patients who have physical complications (including parkinsonism, gait disturbance, urinary disturbance, and emaciation),and patients with DLB."

From "Kampo therapy as an alternative to pharmacotherapy using antipsychotic medicines for behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD)"

My husband has neuroplectic sensitivity, and has had severe reactions to Seroquel. I am looking for something for his hallucinations, paranoid delusions, and Capgras syndrome.
