  • From this study (17 hours ago):

  • Right away my 85 year old mother had noticeable slurring of words and disorientation. Hyper mania giddie and euphoric episodes, ito lethargy in a days time. My mother has been hospitalized 3 times before we discovered that her PCP prescribed this drug for Insomnia. We refer to it as the missing pill that would have helped lead us to the answers for all the Neurogists worming to find the culprit. It is not Dementia, and she experiences dilirium.
