My mum has been on Aricept now for about 5 months and thankfully I think it has slowed down the deteriation process of her condition. However, since taking the medication she constantly complains of a burning sensation in the soles of her feet. Her GP really has no idea what it could be and her consultant at the hospital didn't consider it could be a side effect of the drug. I am just wondering if any other "users" may have encountered such a condition. O if anyone has any other experiences of Aricept, ie for how long will it continue to be beneficial?? I appreciate that some may not have been able to have been prescribed Aricept for whatever reason and don't wish to appear ungrateful or complaining. I am extremely thankful that my mum has been able to continue with some semblance of "normal" life.
