I am hoping that someone might be able to hep me with a problem I am experiencing. My mother who is in her 60s was recently taken off Aricept by her doctor. The explanation is that the drug is not as effective as it was but since she has come off it off it I have noticed a fast deterioration in her condition and as a result I am now looking at the option of Ebixa for her. I know this does not work for everyone but I am keen to try it as it has improved the quality of life for some people. The problem I am facing is actually getting a private prescription as this is not available on the NHS where she lives. Her psychiatrist and GP are not willing to offer us a private prescription although we are willing to pay for it. Their explanation is that they do not offer private prescriptions and only deal with the NHS. I know this can be purchased in Boots with private prescription or on the net so do not understand the problem. I would welcome any ideas on how I can resolved this.
