The MRI ordered by his neurologist showed multiple micro hemorrhages especially in his right temporal lobe and both cerebellar lobes. He is experiencing increasing difficulty with wordfinding, comprehension and mental processing. The neurologist prescribed Aricept at our visit 6 months ago. I asked if he’d keep seeing us if we chose not to take the Aricept. I’d been following webinars about Awakening from Alzheimer’s and Regain Your Brain where specialist after specialist said that nothing the pharmaceuticals have come up with is really of any help.
Now I’m wondering if we made the best decision. What could others share from personal experience? Digestive side effects seem quite likely according to online information.
