Aging adults often take multiple medications. Add to that the confusion that dementia may cause and you have a recipe for disaster. Mismanaging medications can lead to side effects such as drowsiness, irritability and insomnia. Accompanied with dementia, this situation could diminish a person’s quality of life. More than anything, you need to help your family member make sure they are taking their medications correctly. This will help prevent medication mishaps and adverse drug interactions.
