I don't have a question .. I just wanted to say that my 91 year old Mother who has been diagnosed with vascular dementia and probably mixed dementia has been on respiridone patches for 3 months or more , She is always very low . She is now wheel chair bound . I am living with her 24/7 and have a 4 times a day care package in place . She is on palliative Care , She is full of anxieties and hallucinations and She is like Grace in your article about Antiphycotics she suffers on a daily basis
