Melatonin + MAOIs in Elderly w/Sundown Syndrome

Posted by theresa125 on August 23, 2012, at 13:06:30

My mother is 100 and has been experiencing what we believe is SS. She isn't sleeping well, is hallucinating, and has fearful thoughts and confusion, which usually begin around early evening. She is at an assisted living facility and they take good care of her and the other 7 ladies; mom's the oldest, but physically (and usually mentally), is in the best shape of them all.

I bought her melatonin lozenges (4 mg) to help her sleep at night, but I was wondering if it might interfere (or the other way around) with any MAOI she may be taking.

Does anyone know, or have another suggestion/solution on what she could take and how to help decrease the Sundowner's symptoms?
