My father has been on aricept for 18 month now,
the last 6 month he has got worst,
not knowing who i'am , not reconising the house .
The consultant said that he is in the modert to severe stage of his dementia,
he saw the memory nurse and scored 18 on mmt, so they gave him 6 more month of aricept,
but not sure if aricept is just prolonging the agony for him and me,
have seen a few people on talking point sayig that they also have stopped giving the aricept,
also some said the their gp told them that if their loved one had dementia the would'nt give them any form of medcation,
am i being selfish or am i making sence
can't see what the aricept is doing to give him a better quality of life,
all i can see is that he is in a little world of his own,
don't know where to turn or do,
what a life.
