I imagine it's one of those drugs that doesn't really do anything if you don't have the condition it is supposed to treat, it would be like taking tylenol when you don't have a pain or fever. All meds have side effects though, so you would be risking those unnecessarily.

That is what I am hoping. Prescribed because one neurologist believes my husband has early onset of Alzheimers. Just want to know what the drug might do if he doesn't. Thanks.

Did someone else take it by accident? Do you suspect that the doctor prescribed it wrongly?

Not by accident, but prescribed for my husband who is suspected of having early Alzheimers. Given to prolong memory and 'delay' somewhat the disease.
