Thank you for your kind words, Adrian and the support from everyone on here.
It helps so much.
My husband is recovering physically in hospital and his shambolic care continues.
The ward is mainly for Altzheimers patients. There is a board on the wall in the ward which stated on Friday, "Today is Thursday" which has been changed today to " Today is Saturday".
Yesterday the nurse in charge asked if the parking was easier " as it always is on a Sunday".
She seemed surprised when I told her it was Saturday.
My husband was visited today by a doctor and 2 mental health nurses.All three told me that they have never heard of impulse control disorders caused by DAs despite much involvement with Parkinson's patients.
They were horrified when I enlightened them.
They thought counselling might help.
If they had read his notes, lost but now found, they would have known he has had 4 years of counselling.
He went for a head scan yesterday and waited ages for a porter to bring him back. He was told he had missed tea.
The man in the bed opposite gave him a sandwich.
I have insisted he is seen by a psychiatrist who understands that an antidepressant needs to be prescribed that doesn't inter-react with Sinemet and Rasagilene as the chemist refused to dispense a prescription for Sertraline a few weeks ago as it could be fatal combined with Rasagilene.
When I told the consultant who prescribed it he refused to offer an alternative as he "didn't know enough about side effects in such patients".
The depression escalated...thus our current situation.
Our Parkinson's nurse is visiting on Wednesday and she is wonderful so advice should be forthcoming.
I would welcome advice from friends on here about antidepressants.
The despair continues...
