Patient Comments: Pick Disease - Treatment

What kinds of treatment has your loved one received for Pick disease?

Comment from: mlosey, 45-54 Male (Caregiver) Published: October 08

My husband was diagnosed with Pick's disease/frontotemporal disease 2 years ago and he is 48 years old. The medication I have found most helpful is Nuedexta twice daily, and Abilify injection once a month that I give at home. The area I struggle with is sleep, he takes Restoril 30 mg and he is still not sleeping.

My husband went on treatment for depression prior to his diagnosis of FTD. There is no treatment besides medication to keep him calm. Nothing has been done to help him. My frustration with his illness is that nobody seems to know how to deal patients with FTD.
