We want to relieve the anxiety among clients with Parkinsons with Lorazepam. Listening to their breathing at night and addiction to the med, makes us change our mind about daily use of Lorazepam. Per our experience, the client had difficulty breathing at 68 with Parkinsons. It also produces more thigh muscle cramps instead of relieving the cramps. Is there a better way?
Most neuro meds are addicting and results in the same health issues it is suppose to relieve.
Combine this med on as needed basis, not used daily with holistic home care with caring caregivers providing massage, extra care and compassion, healthy meals and lorazepam can only be used few times a week instead of daily.
Sometimes, the presence of caregivers relieve their anxiety without the need for medications. A full stomach also helps them sleep well and a regular massage before bedtime, legs and feet massage.
