Hi everyone Just checking in. We had a visit from the nurse from the memory clinic on Thursday. She was very nice, checked my OH over and asked lots of questions. She then handed over his next months prescription which had increased the strength of the donepezil from 5mg to 10mg. I hadn't realised that they start with a lower dose then increase it! We were so happy that he had been able to take the tablets without any side effects and thought that was it, now we have to keep our fingers crossed that he can take the stronger dose. She also told us that there was a Get together meeting run in our area twice a month for people with the early stages of Alzheimer's and their carers when I told her that I had decided that the Alzheimer's cafe run in the area might not be suitable and probably frighten him. We are going along to the next meeting to see what it is all about. If nothing else I should be able to pick up information of where we go from here. Today my OH has been more like his old self and am wondering if it is the tablets taking effect as they say on the info that they take two or more weeks to work and he has now been on them for three weeks. I come on to TP every evening to read the posts and take great comfort from it, although for some reason I am finding it difficult to respond to any of the posts. I must be doing something wrong.
