  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • This is for my father who sustained a traumatic head injury 8 years ago. He is able to walk, talk, eat, and be alone for short periods of time. My concern is that the concoction of drugs has increased dramatically in recent years; he suffers from extreme confusion, anxiety, agitation and recently suicidal thoughts. His mood can go from fine to very angry which may simply be the head injury; however, his gate is unsteady (has been for years now) and he's able to communicate that he's not right and can't think straight. I am very, very concerned that the number of meds and steady increase over the years is making things worse. It started out as a process to minimize and control seizures, now it's become a mixture that seems to completely snow him and I want to do whatever I can to make sure he's not missing out on a higher quality of life. I could write a book about this...sorry and thanks!
