As patients get older, those
with chronic mental illness may find treatments
that used to work might not be the right treatments
now. Symptoms they once experienced may have changed.
It is common to develop new mood or behavioral symptoms,
sometimes in the context of an underlying cognitive
deficit. Medical illness and normal physical changes
with aging may alter the response to medications.
Dosages may need to be reduced or medications changed
entirely to avoid unwanted side effects.
