My father just got placed in a nursing home 10 days ago. He is having difficulty recognizing his room and is wandering into other patients rooms. The behavioral consultant for this nursing home is reccomending a very low dose of either risperidone or seroquel. In looking them up online there are very emphatic warnings against using either of these drugs for the treatment of behaviors due to dementia, which my dad has. He is 82. What should I do?
