Dementia with Depression Symptoms

Things which sometimes blamed to 'getting old' and medical conditions like Dementia/ Alzheimer's has a fine line. I used to think my mother was just getting forgetful, and living in less social Western society(she grew up in India, extermely social lifestyle)mild depression was blamed. Recently her symptoms have progressed to alarming state. Now everyday she forgets little stuff, and misplaced things are increasing her psych symptoms too. She started blaming others when her things are misplaced, little auditory hallucinations here and there. She admits her forgetfullness when she finds her missing things, but if she does not find it, she becomes very sad and depressed. Loss of appetite along with it, she lost 20 pounds in last 6 months. Although it has helped her with her coronery artery disease, she does not get that short of breath anymore(she credits this to Qunol Co-Enzyme Q-10)she had quad by-pass 12 yrs ago. Sometimes she is paranoid, she puts locks on everything in her room, had me change her bedroom lock twice. She locks her door even going to bathroom. I am very concerned. Doctor here started her with Effexor and now Aricept for few days.I have tried -HTP, and Sam-e too. Due to the side effects( upset stomach) it is very hard to convince her to take these. She also takes anti-hypertensives( Cardizem Er 180Mg). I totally believe in Homeopathy,I grew up in India, and always been lucky to treat minor stuff with limited remedies we find in our local organic markets. I will greatly appreciate for dedicating your precious time and kind advise.

Please give her a single dose of Nux Vomica 200c and see how that affects her in the next 15 days.

Nux Vomica is one of the best medicines for start treatment espically if patient has taken various allopathic medicines.

I will definately try Nux-Vomica 200C and update you on results. What should we do with her Allopathic meds, I was told not to stop Effexor abruptly, Aricept she only has taken 2times. How about continuation on her hypertension med(Cardizem). Please guide. Really appreciate your valuable time and precious advise.
Many Thanks.

**You shouldn't. It is better to phase it out if she responds well to Nux.

How about continuation on her hypertension med(Cardizem).
**That should continue.
