My mother is having severe terminal agitation and delirium. The doctor ordered a cocktail of psychiatric drugs to be given within a 6 hour period. Every 6 hours would you can start the dosages over again. Mother was calm and 8 hours went by from her last cocktail treatment. Quickly, mother received her cocktail.
