He has had Alzheimer’s for about 7 years and never was a morning person and is currently taking 10 MG Aricept every evening

When did he start taking Aricept? Ten years ago? Sleepiness can be a side effect of that drug. My husband takes Aricept and he sleeps about 9 hours a night and occasionally takes a nap. Obviously Aricept doesn't make everyone sleep a lot, but different people have different reactions to drugs. What does his doctor say about the excessive sleepiness?

Aricept is the only drug. Takes vitamins/minerals. Been sleeping a lot last 10 years, so it's not new.

Oh, sorry, you already answered about the diagnosis -- ALZ. What other drugs is he taking?
