My LO has Lewy Body Dementia, had a seizure and now has a Compression Fracture in his spine. Looking for medications for pain control that are safe for people with LBD.

Hello @anthonyvw1940 and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I'm so sorry about your LO. I was able to find some information that may be helpful below.
"If possible, avoid medications with anticholinergic properties, which can worsen cognition, or dopamine agonists, which can cause hallucinations. First-generation antipsychotic medications, such as haloperidol (Haldol), should not be used to treat Lewy body dementia."
