Post subject:  Sharing LBD Issues

Have read post about LBD and having similar situations with Bob, my husband having issues with seeing things that are not there, also people and even saw out two dogs who have been gone for a long time. We are careful with his activites, if he gets upset and extream agitation we give him small dose of Ativan and after a time will settle down and rest. He takes 25 mg seroquel at nite to have him rest. I do have cna around the clock and that sure helps and they are learning how LBD can be so unkind. He also has very low blood pressure readings and takes Midodrine twice a day,that helps, he will just go down after standing up, which is difficult anyway. It is so assuring to read all the post and I pray for peace for all dealing with LBD. We also have Hospice help, he takes coumendin and that needs checking.Blessings to all Pauline :D [/b]
