Treatment of Agitation in Dementia
Principal Investigator: Constantine Lyketsos, M.D., M.H.S.
The goal of this study is to determine if treating dementia patients with a medication that is used to treat depression and anxiety (Escitalopram), in combination with a psychosocial intervention, will reduce symptoms of agitation. Participants in the study will be given either the active drug or a placebo (i.e., a sugar pill) for 9 weeks.
