Delirium often clears in a few days or weeks. Some people may not respond to treatment for many weeks. Others may never go back to the way they were. The sooner the cause can be found and treated, the better the chance of recovery.
You may see memory or thinking problems that don’t go away. Everyone is different. Please talk with your healthcare provider if you have questions or concerns.
