Today I had a call fom the day hospital where Bill has been attending once a week since August for assessment. The key worker said that the doctor was thinking of taking him off Aricept. She seems to think that it is no longer doing him any good and that his scores have dropped. She is going to do some testing on Monday then decide if she will change his medication. This has come as quite a shock. I'm worried that I have been so focused on dealing with mum that I haven't noticed things might not be so good with Bill. He has been on Aricept for around 8 years now and I thought it was still ok for him. I don't know what they will change him to and I'm a but worried he will deteriorate if he comes off it. I wondered if anyoone had experience of alternatives.
