Thank you for posting your query.
I agree with you that decorate ER is a medicine used for bipolar mood disorders (depression
and mania). It is also used for treating migraine
For your father's wandering tendency, other medicine that is likely to be useful is Quetiapine
. Please discuss this with his neurologist
The medicines are required for short-term, and it can be stopped once his symptoms improve.
