My mother was put on the Exelon patch (low dosage) July 2012, After she was diagnosed with MCI. She was getting better with it. Personality had changed back to her normal self and she was remembering things better. She was admitted to a nursing home in September and by December the nursing home took her off of it "because it can cause crying spells" . Now we are now going backwards.

My Mom is in a local Nursing Home. The nurses had a patch for 1/24/10 on her back then the one for 1/25/10 was in the front on her chest. The Dr. wants it on her chest, but evidently one nurse thought she knows better than the Dr. She had a seizure around 8:00 am they sent her to the ER all tests were clear,but we asked if they could keep her over night for obervation. At mid night she had some sort of seizure with me. She was vomiting, then she turned her head to the left her head shaking and eyes rolled back. They put her in ICU right away and stayed the the hospital for several days. Has never had any thing else. Would this be from an overdose?

My Grandson was prescribed this med. for a Traumatic Brain Injury. I have not seen any results. He has been using this for over a month. I wonder how long before we can expect to see any results?
