Restlessness and sleep problems are very common in patients with various types of dementia, such as Alzheimer's disease, Lewy body dementia, etc. Melatonin is a safe, over-the-counter natural substance that may also offer benefits either as monotherapy without risk or in conjunction with clonazepam for insomnia in patients with Lewy body dementia.

Try olanzapine, which has a calming effect. But the drug is available by prescription and requires a prescription for use.
