Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Agressive behavioural change in the elderly can be due to various causes. Some of the common causes are late-onset psychosis
. Certain types of dementia like frontal lobe
dementia can present with a predominant change in behaviour, without any significant impairment in memory initially.
Your mother will need a detailed psychological assessment in order to find out the probable cause of her problem. It is not advisable to start medication on your own since they can have untoward side effects, especially in the elderly. Relicalm is an anti-psychotic medication
which has to be prescribed only for specific indications in the appropriate dosage. So, please take her to a doctor for an evaluation, so that appropriate treatment can be started.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar
