Having followed the sage advice on here and pestered the Psychiatrist, he is (allegedly) writing a letter to the GP to ask them to give us a prescription for Memantine. We spoke to the Psych on Thursday evening and haven't heard anything since. I phoned the surgery on Friday morning to ask them to keep an eye out for it and fax the prescription to the pharmacy as a matter of urgency. I'll phone them again tomorrow. Anyway, what I wanted to know was whether anyone else had any success with Memantine? Is there anything we should expect or is it just the usual dementia lottery? Also does anyone know whether we need to stop his Melatonin when we start the Memantine?
