This is regarding my 87-year-old father who is physically fine perfectly. But, the whole day and night, he curses my mother and will not let her sleep. In his mind, he thinks that everyone is trying to cheat him and because of that he is not able to sleep. Sometimes he becomes violent also. Currently, he is on Clonazepam 5 mg. Please help.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Your father is having features of psychosis.
I would suggest starting him on Quetiapine 25 mg twice daily and increase after one week to 50 mg daily. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take medicines with their consent.
This should have a good impact on his behavior.
However, if needed you can consult a psychiatrist also for proper evaluation.
