My husband is 71 and had been getting increasingly conjused and forgetful. Unable or unwilling to make a meal for himself ,even heating up soup. Aricept 10Mg has helped his appetite although he still wont prepare food and he is much more socialble. Glad we have it, no side effects he will adit to.

It has helped with verbal communication. It may have caused longer, more involved/detailed dreams that I am willing to trade-off on the speech aspect.

keeps the user of this drug awake at night and confused whether it is day or night--will have to decide about continuing or discontinuing-have heard it does nit cure dementia at all-and it is (maybe) helpful in slowing the progress of the dementia???

I am posting this again! I am so disgusted with this crap. So you create a medication with the greatest side affect of diarrhea for already impaired individuals!!! I will no longer be giving this to my mother we saw no difference accept her feeling ashamed about diarrhea. Is this the best you can do!!!!

This medication is not a cure for the condition let's make that clear. There is no cure..this medication is just palliative care. It does not stop the progression please do not give out false hope about this medication. My mother-in-law was on it, and my husband and I had her taken off of it. It's just the pharmaceutical companies racking up dollars!!!!!!!! IT IS NOT A CURE!!!!
