Hello- my mom went on Namenda about a month ago (the 3rd med we’ve tried). I feel like the meds rob her of all personality. Anyone else?



My moms been on Namenda time release about 6 weeks now. I think it may be helping level out some really agitated then sleeping patterns she was exhibiting. It doesn't seem to have affected her personality. I was told this morning she lead the dining room table in a round of “My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean”. She’s still pretty funny so personality wise I’d say she’s the same.

Pepsee, that's so interesting that you had that experience with Seroquel. For one of my good friends, that drug was quite literally a life saver when she went into a sudden and unremitting depression that no other treatment was touching.

She’s also on an anti depressant cholesterol medication, thyroid medication and vitamins (all low doses)....

I would not think that Namenda would do that. What other meds is he on?

My hubby is on Namenda and we haven't noticed any personality changes at all with it. I'm sure that it varies with the individual though, like most meds do.

Ho Daniel.
I went through that with seroquil. Plus it made me eat like I was going to the electric chair. I hated it with a passion. Dr finally removed it.

Good luck Dave!
