My moms my mom is 84 taking narcotic pain medication

My moms my mom is 84 taking narcotic pain medication for nerve damage due to bad hip replacements and knee replacement as well as potassium pills and daily drinking boost. She began having personality disorders being agitated, confrontational and threatening to harm herself and others around her. Just plain mean and evil. Her dr prescribed risperdal but clearly everything I read says it should not be used for symptoms of dimentia or taken with narcotic pain meds and could increase death in elderly. What should I do?

I have very recently been prescribed butrans patches and tramadol for break through pain while my neurologist/pain management doctor is working on relieving my severe chronic neck and lower back pain that runs all down the way down my right leg with radio frequency among other injections and procedures. My question to you is how effective IS butrans pain patches, because I have never heard of them? Also, is it safe to take other narcotic pain medications while wearing them?

hi my name is denise and i have a 3 years grandson who has had a runny nose and cough, fever on and off, he has been really whinny and cry babyish for the last 3 or 4 days, his mom took him to see an urgent care dr. and he said its just a simple cold, and his white blood count wasnt off so he wouldnt do further tests. prescribed him liquid motrim and liquid mucinex for children, so today we were at a friends house and he began to cry uncontolably and i ask him what was wrong he said his ear hurt, as i started to move his hair away from it he began screaming and crying like i ve never seen before, so i call his dad and tell him what had just occured and they decided to take him back to see the dr. again. she calls me after this visit saying there was nothing wrong with him that he was just acting out, i have no reason not to believe what she is telling me. my question is should i just ignore how my grandson acted today, or should i go with what i truly believe was a cry of pain and be persistant about having further test done?
