My sister is in her 7th year with the diagnosis of CBD.... likely she had it a few years earlier. Her progress has been slow.... but recently she has frequent - and getting more frequent - episodes of talking to people who do not exist. She gets very agitated with the 'people' and is now going around the house hitting at furniture and other objects. She has only hit our caregiver twice ... but I can see that this may increase. I will put her to bed and she will talk to 'her people' until 2:00am! I will go to her room to ask her to stop talking and she will agree and be silent for a few minutes only to start up again. My husband and son are using earplugs to help get sleep - but I feel I need to listen because one time she got out of bed and hit the lamp and knocked it off the table. She does not leave her room - YET- and wander around the house.
I have told her neurologist about this and he is giving her Nudexa and her siezure medication... he said there is really no other medication to be prescribed. If she has several beers and we get her a little drunk, she will SOMETIMES go right to sleep.
What are your experiences with this type of behavior? I really really need sleep and we are all tired of living with my sister's 'friends'.
