CAMH is part of an international study exploring a potential new treatment for agitation in people who have Alzheimer’s disease.

Treatment options for agitation in Alzheimer’s disease are limited. The S-CitAD study is a clinical trial sponsored by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) in the U.S. The study is examining if a prescription medication called escitalopram combined with psycho-social therapy can help reduce agitation. The therapy involves meeting with a trained health care professional and discussing activities, techniques and strategies that can help improve your well-being and day-to-day functioning.
