This is probably going to sound a bit weird.... Mum's been put on Aricept, low dose for a month, then if all goes well up to 10mg. I was talking to my other half saying that there didn't seem to be much of a difference in Mum (I know it's not long) but then he said that if it was working (ie keeping her on an even keel) there won't be anything to notice! Hmm, how true (damn him) Have I really got to wait till they reassess her in three months or has anyone noticed a change for the better? Touch wood there have been no side effects -phew, having read other posts. Or should I just not be so damned impatient????
