Today the memory clinic confirmed what we really already knew. My mum has mixed AD/vascular dementia. She's 93 and has done remarkably well considering, but has mobility problems and we now have carers coming during the day and will be moving to 24/7 live-in care early in the new year. The memory clinic has offered to put her on Aricept or similar. My mum is wary of most medication and is always put off by potential side effects, particularly anything likely to upset her stomach and this could be an issue from what I understand. Is it worth just trying a drug like this for a few days to see if she can tolerate it? She is on Tramadol and Metroclopramide long term. I do wonder if putting her on medication which may not have significant benefits but causes her more discomfort is going to do more harm than good? Has anyone here found it was particularly beneficial?
