Episode 359: Agitation and aggression in the elderly – PART II

In episode 359, Mike and James continue to agitate over the evidence for treating agitation in dementia. We talk about the use of benzodiazepines, antidepressants cholinesterase inhibitors for this difficult to treat condition. The evidence ends up just increasing our level of agitation as these agents unfortunately really don’t do a heck of a lot for many people.
