Ohio Elder Abuse

The use of antipsychotics to

"manage" elderly patients

I have run into a case where an elderly client was drugged into a stupor by her caregiver.  Once off the off-label antipsychotic, the elderly person rebounded into a much better life.

Of course, the elderly person must have someone on the outside to manage their care, as they have been drugged into incompetence and incapacity.

The use of antipsychotics can be a major issue in the care of a loved one.
