Is Belsomra Safe For An Alzheimer Patient?
no problem with Alzheimer's
there is no contraindication (or warning) for patients with Alzheimer's dementia. Therefore no problems can be anticipated. Geriatric patients and patients with dementia should generally be watched closely when starting any new medication. You haven't mentioned any other drugs but there are some rather minor interactions with donepezil which is a drug for dementia, so if he already takes donepezil then please get his doctor's advise about the best way to improve his sleep. They can be taken together but the dosage will have to be individualized.
