Husband doing weird things. Here are just a few Cutting up onions added pills and cough drops.Trying to use  air freshner as spam.   Has had brain scan. Told by doctor has had two old small strokes. Nephrologist gave test past all questions. Any body's relatives doing anything like this also. Also given mri did not find anything. Everymorning even after spending exhaustive hours explaining where his pills are in a square box and how to turn off his medication alarm clock. He is rummage through his drawer pushing pill bottles pushing anything pushing his bipap machine trying to get that noise to stop. Even took copy fo medication to pharmacist after hearing that it might be a medication problem.Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Particularly interested in those who have family members who have dementia.

Yea for you for taking the meds to the pharmacist. In addition to always checking with them I used

My husband started with a neurologist. Then went to a motion disorder specialist. My husband was diagnosed with Parkinson's (no tremor) and the final diagnosis was Lewy Body Dementia.

Your husband's behavior is not abnormal.  He is likely past your being able to "explain" or to "reason".

Is what you are seeing an abrupt change?
