    Wonderful news Jan. I too hope it lasts. :D

    If it`s any reassurance, when my husband was prescribed Aricept it had adverse effects immediately, within a day or two. So it does seem to work quickly. In your husband`s case, for the better. :D

    Love xx

    Hi. So glad to hear your news.

    John was prescribed Reminyl, but like Terry, the effect was instant -- and lasted for six years!

    So think positive! There are no guarantees with these drugs, but when they work, they're brilliant.

    Good luck to you both,

    That is really great news. My Peter was put on Aricept and I noticed a difference in him quite quickly.
    Good luck to you and Dave.
    Best wishes

    My husband too had a positive reponse to Aricept on it two years.

    Hope Terry continues to do well.
