My father is 75 and was diagnosed with Dementia last year, he has Myoclonus Jerks due to the Dementia and has been put on Rivotril .25mg per night. In the mornings he can hardly talk and has trouble walking is this normal? Can he be put onto something that would not affect him like that, or can I give him supplements that would stop the jerking?

Hello, Nadine! How are you?

That's a very high dosage, are you sure it's 25mgs?

There are alternative medications he can take, or a lowering of the dosage may also prevent him from feeling like that in the morning.

This is a benzodiazepines, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability..
