Alzheimer's - How To Treat It?

Alzheimer's - How To Treat It?

With age, most body organs begin to deteriorate in their function. This happens to the brain also, thereby reducing the overall speed of functioning of most organs. While slowing of bodily movement is visible, the internal organs functioning also slows down, which is not that obvious. Memory loss or dementia is one of the main manifestations of this degeneration of the brain.

Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, and the associated symptoms includes reduced reasoning abilities and cognitive defects. Though it is seen only in the elderly, not all elderly people will have Alzheimer’s. The overall quality of life of the affected person is reduced with difficulty remembering things that were recently learned. It is a progressive disease and as it gets more severe, a full-time caretaker may be required.

Causes: The brain cells are affected by protein masses known as plaques and tangles. These hamper the way communication between the brain cells happens as well as affect nutrition from reaching all parts of the brain. This leads to shrinking of the brain, eventually leading to memory loss and other problems. There is also a strong genetic linkage, as most people with Alzheimer’s have the lipoprotein A gene.

Symptoms: Though memory loss is the most common symptom, there are other symptoms:

  1. Being confused about places, people, and times
  2. Inability to find the right words during conversations
  3. Regular objects are misplaced
  4. Becoming irritable, (in someone who was not so previously)
  5. Mood swings
  6. Personality changes
  7. Inability to organise thoughts
  8. Not able to make the right decisions
  9. Repetitive talks and actions
  10. Forgetfulness (not something the person always does)
  11. Difficulty with numbers (again, not something calculations
  12. Difficulty managing everyday tasks and minor problems
  13. Suspicion of others (like immediate family members and friends)

Risk factors: While age is definitely a risk factor, the fact that not all aged people develop Alzheimer’s is to be borne in mind. Other risk factors include the history of stroke, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, obesity, and poor lifestyle choices.

Diagnosis: While there is no definitive way to diagnose Alzheimer’s, symptoms along with brain scans and neuropsychological function testing are useful ways to confirm the diagnosis.

Treatment: This is aimed at two things reducing the rate of disease progression and treat (or reverse) symptoms if possible.

Cholinesterase inhibitors improve cellular communication in the brain and also manage depression and agitation. Memantine is used to slow the pace of disease progression.
In people with the disease, small changes are useful to help them with the symptoms. These include keeping essential things like keys and wallet in the same place, keep a daily diary to help them remember things, keep pictures of friends and family within visible distance.

Reduce Screen Time!

Internet and social media have now become a part and parcel of life. Not only youngsters but every age group is at risk of excessive screen usage and even addiction. Being mindful of regular use, taking a break after 1-2 hours of continued use and also spending more time outdoors, reading books , socializing with family and friends will all help to curb the habit of excessive screen time.

Risperidone is the right medication if it was psychosis. It controls symptoms of psychosis and helps with sleep etc. If you think you have improved and feeling benefits continue with it but it has to be monitored by the psychiatrist regularly for any side effects. So it is good for you if the original diagnosis was right and the side effects always has to be balanced with benefits of taking it.

Lybrate-user, You shouldn’t take medications without adequate assessment and advise of psychiatrist. If you continue to feel depressed despite the antidepressant then dosage may be increased or the medication can be reviewed and changed. Alprazolam is a short acting benzodiazepine and has been used to treat anxiety though preferably not long term. So I advise review and assessment by the psychiatrist of symptoms and medications.

Manage Your Anger!

MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, MRCPsych, MSc Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai

Several people have asked me how can they control their anger. Now even recognizing that one needs help with anger is a big step. First I would say start with having a diary for at least a month and see what triggers your anger and how it makes you feel afterwards and what makes it better. This recording in a diary will be a small step in a big way to start thinking about your anger issues.

Lybrate-user, The medications olanzapine and Clonazepam are prescribed in low doses if there is a renal impairment under the supervision of a psychiatrist and only when the benefits of taking the medications outweigh the risks. If you have anxiety and depression issues you could review how bad the symptoms are and start cognitive behaviour therapy which does not involve medications. If that helps you and your symptoms reduce then medications can be reduced and stopped by the psychiatrist.

Lybrate-user, Paroxetine is a newer antidepressant known as SSRI. The dose you are taking is also low. There are side effects to any medications and this is why it is important that the psychiatrist monitors you regularly for both symptoms of depression and side effects of medication. However medications are prescribed after taking the pros and cons into consideration and when the benefit of medications outweigh any risks they may have.
