Hello I am so relieved to have found people to talk to who might understand! My dad has Parkinson's and dementia. He and my mum live in France and so I am trying to support them from a distance most of the time visiting as often as I can.
Recently dad has started grinding his teeth sometimes all day long! My mum is finding it hard to cope. The neurologist has prescribed risperidone to treat it. This is on top of Modopar and Stavelo.
Does anyone have any knowledge of treating teeth grinding? We are very reluctant to give dad yet more drugs especially an antipsychotic. We are desperate to know what to do!
Any advice please.
