Risperidone contains the active ingredient Risperdal, this is a potent antipsychotic medication, commonly used to treat conditions such as psychosis, Alzhemiers, depression and other similar conditions.

Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, anxiety and muscle pain.

That said, Joan, some of these medications may be unnecessary, as they are used to treat the same condition, like the blood pressure meds.

Some of them may also aggravate the side effects, which may explain some of her problems, such as not eating.

I suggest, if you are allowed to speak for her and have access to her medical information, that you talk to her doctor and nurses and insist they explain the purpose of EACH medication and why she needs to be on it.

Do you have any other questions?

WLL FOR THREE OF THESE DRUGS,FEROSIMIDE IS A WATER PILL AKA LASIX IT IS USED FOR CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE.LISINOPRIL AND METROPROLOL ARE BETA BLOCKERS AND ARE SUPPOSED TO MAKE THE HEART PUMP STRONGER,WHICH IS OKAY FOR CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE.HYDROCODONE IS AN ADDICTIVE OPIATE DRUG FOR PAIN.IT IS ONE OF THE MILDEST BUT STILL POTENT IF ABUSED.ALL 3 OF THE HEART MEDS CAN MAKE YOU TIRED AND FORGETFUL.THE PAIN MED IF TAKEN RIGHT FOR PAIN CAN ACTUALLY HELP IF SHE IS IN PAIN.IT SOUNDS LIKE THE CORRECT MEDS FORHER CONDITION BUT I AM NOT A DOCTOR.I SUGGEST YOU ASK AN INTERNAL MEDICINE DOCTOR AND AHVE ALL HER MEDS INFO AND HER CONDITION TO EXPLAIN TO THE DOCTOR.

You need to look up the meds on line. Your mom is getting more thsn one bp meds. Drs give patients standard doses of meds. Your mom like my mom weighs much less than a regular person.The doses may be too much in combo foe your mom. Read up on all your moms meds then have a sit down meeting w her dr and discuss your concerns of her tiredness dosages etc. Are you sure your mom has Alz, or does she have dementia! Actually denentia is the broad topic and Alz is a sub topic but I suppose that calling Alz it has a more hyped name. My uncle and his wife who I cared for for ten years...he had dementia she with Alz. What a difference! Your mom going into other peoples' beds can be either she doesnt remember which is her room or in dentia there is a loss of some inhibition.thee may be other reasins that I have not experienced.or maybe she and another are just having a relatinship of sorts. Speak to dr. About the meds

Are these meds being prescribed by one doctor? There should be one doc overseeing all meds to check for interactions. You can do the same. There is maranol ( spl? ) an appetite enhancing med. It came in gel cap which needed to be squeezed out because my mom couldnot swallow the gel cap.
I know how trying this can be. Plz reach out to a support group.
