Tonight my husband said that is what he feels like tonight. Ativan did not help. He had been on low dose 5mg for a month and I didn't see any changes. We upped it to 5 more MG about 4 days ago and he hasn't been feeling too good. Is this the Dementia or Aricept? WebMD did not say anything about the side effect of anxiety or falling to pieces. Can anyone help soon ??
