Hello everyone This is my second post. Could anyone give me some advice on AD medication please? My (mid-60's) mother has just began Reminyl as she is in the early stages of AD. However, having had a brief look into research findings of AD medication, Aricept 'appears' to be more effective and better tolerated than Reminyl. As I am not a doctor, I am not sure why my mother's consultant favours one against the other. However, I got the feeling from what my mother's therapist said, that Reminyl was the consultant's standard choice. - Do I have the right to ask why Reminyl is being prescribed? - Do I have the right to ask for my mother to be given Aricept? - Does my mother have legal rights to any AD drug at this stage? I realise that medication is an emotive subject and some may even say avoid it, but where there is hope.............. Thank you for your help.
