Dr. Ian A. Stein, MD's Expert Contributions
  • Sleep problems and Alzheimer's

    Sleep in patients with Alzheimer's can be challenging. First step is to develop good sleep hygiene. Regulate the light using dark curtains and day lamps. Keeping familiar items at the bedside can be helpful. First I would try things like melatonin. 3-10mg of synthetic can be helpful. If medicines are needed, trazadone and low doses of seroquel are good choice. Avoid sedatives and medications like ambien if able. READ MORE
