Thank you for posting your query.
I have noted your mother's complaints. She has severe Alzheimer's disease, and her current main problem seems to be sleep disturbance. We should be careful in giving her sleeping pills. This is because her metabolism
would be slow, and sleeping pills can make her more confused.
The best option would be zolpidem
tablets, which does not produce any hang-over and its action lasts for 6-8 hours.
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
