Husband Had Hallucinations

Hello, husband was experienced hallucinations, due to side effect of Mir-apex 3.00MG pill. Hallucinations were against me, seeing me having conversations in the middle of the night with a man.

What's The Consensus Here On Nuplazid? My Mother Has Psychotic Episodes Apparently Related To Her Parkinsonism. Would It Help Or Hurt?

My mother was diagnosed with Parkinsonism in 2013. Since around April, she's suffered from increased cognitive problems (e.g., delusional episodes and vague hallucinations). Her neurological treatment team has prescribed Nuplazid but she's reluctant to take it because of its higher mortality risk and lack of a track record. Unfortunately, she has these psychotic episodes every few days and I do a poor job handling them. What should I do?
