Has your husband been diagnosed with REM Sleep Behavior Disorder (Acting out dream state, talking in sleep etc). It is a major criteria for Lewy Body Dementia. Important to know that diagnosis as drugs such as Halperidol or similar for agitation are not recommended and can make symptoms worse.

Yes, actually they have diagnosed him with REM Sleep Behavior Disorder. He kicks violently sometimes and sometimes falls out of bed. I did not know that this was associated with Lewy Body Dementia. Thank you so much for this information. I will do some research on this. I wonder if that is why the medication they gave him made symptoms so much worse. That would make sense. Thank you all. I am very grateful for this group.
