I have early stage Alzheimer’s so was prescribed Donapezil - which seemed to help my cognition but unfortunately gave me appalling nightmares. So I then tried Rivastigmine patches, which solved the bad dreams but caused constant back pain. My GP has suggested stopping them - within a few hours the pain has gone away, but I’m left feeling really tired and ‘foggy’ so clearly they were having a positive cognitive effect. Has anyone else had similar issues with medication…and how have you solved it?
