Hello, My mum has got Alzheimers and it would be great to be able to keep in touch with some others with experience of Alheimers. She hasn't been diagnosed for long, but recently she has taken a turn for the worse and is experiencing some psychotic problems which has been very difficult for me to deal with. Does anybody else have any experience of Aricept having awful side effects ie extreame agitation and anxiety? One doctor has told me that her recent problems are probably caused by a small stroke, but another thinks the psychotic experience could be a bad side effect of the Aricept? The pyschotic tendancies only came on when she started the Aricept? Is this a coincidence? I would love to hear from anybody with any information about this. Thank you.
