Hi I wonder if anyone has any thoughts on this. My Mum was diagnosed with AD a few years ago. She acknowledged that she had ‘memory problems’ and although it worried her to a certain extent, she seemed to deal with it pretty well and was generally happy and contented with her life. She was first prescribed with Aricept but only took it for a very short time as she couldn’t tolerate it (she was dashing back and fore to the loo all the time). She was then prescribed Reminyl but had problems with that as well. Now she is taking Ebixa (not sure if I’m spelling these correctly). Lately she has been less relaxed and was tearful when I went to visit her on Saturday saying ‘If your Dad can’t cope with me any more I’ll have to go into a home’. No-one has mentioned anything of the sort to her but it’s as though she is more aware of her AD and is becoming more worried about it – wringing her hands etc. Is this the AD progressing, or could it be the medication she is now taking? Has anyone any clues? She is cared for by my Dad, who is nearly 81 and is doing a marvellous job. He’s showing reserves of patience which I never thought he possessed.
