    Abstract Background Behavioural and psychiatric disturbances affect at least 50% of people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Neuroleptic drugs are extensively prescribed to treat behavioural manifestations of dementia in spite of only modest efficacy and a high frequency of adverse effects. There is clearly a need for safer and more effective remedies. People with Alzheimer’s disease may become agitated or aggressive as the disease gets worse. Agitation means that a person is restless or worried. He or she doesn’t seem to be able to settle down. Agitation may cause pacing, sleeplessness, or aggression, which is when a person lashes out verbally or tries to hit or hurt someone.. Causes of Agitation and Aggression.

    Agitation is a general term to describe excessive physical movement and verbal activity. Agitation often develops in the middle stages of Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia and can include restlessness, pacing, verbal aggression, combativeness, calling out and crying, and wandering. The study randomized elderly patients with dementia, who were hospitalized for behavioral symptoms, to 12 weeks of treatment with titrated doses of either citalopram or risperidone. The mean maximum doses were mg of citalopram and mg of risperidone. The primary outcome measure was a reduction in the NBRS agitation and psychosis : Kenneth J. Bender, PharmD, Ma.

      Agitation is common in care home residents with dementia, particularly those with moderate or severe dementia.1,2 Agitation can manifest as disruptive vocalisation, restlessness, and repetitive questioning. Such behaviour often indicates an unmet need.3 Agitation is associated with lower quality of life for care home residents,4 increased costs, and work-related stress in care home Author: Frances Bunn, Melanie Handley. Witnessing agitation in an older adult struggling with dementia is upsetting and unsettling for family members and caregivers, and unraveling its possible causes and triggers is worthy of.
