My dad, who has frontal temporal dementia diagnosed 2.5 yrars ago has been behaving violenltly towards people for a few months now. Befoore there seemed to be a trigger. Now it is prettu random and I am worried for my mum who”schis only carer. Is there an effective drug in your opinion who could keep him calm? He is ok most of the time but has outbursts. We already tried Lamictal and Valproic acid without results and are kind of desperate now. Thanks

Hi, unfortunately this is a normal symptom of FTD. There isn’t always a trigger for the behavior change because of the way that FTD impacts the brain. I would talk to a geriatric specialist physician about the outbursts, and see if there is something that they’d recommend.
