Aricept - the wonder drug...

We hope.

Ron started on Aricept this week. I am not sure how long it will take before we see any improvement in his memory, or if we will see one at all. Maybe all we'll see is no continued decline of his memory functions.

According to their website, Aricept users could experience any of the following - which would indicate that it was working:

Symptoms may improve
Symptoms may not change
Symptoms may worsen slower than without ARICEPT

We will have to wait and see how this goes. The doctor gave him a 30 day supply to start.

Next month, maybe she'll start him on Topamax to see if his tremors improve.
