Todoay my husband was diagnosed with beginning Alzheimer’s. The doctor wants to put him on Aricept if the heart doctor ok's it. He has a pacemaker. He is 85 years old and part of the IDEAS program (Imaging Dementia Evidence for Amyloid Scanning). I am stressed right now. It seems to me this topic has been mentioned in the past. Would someone tell me of their experiences with Aricept? I seem to remember It didn't work well. The doctor said one of the side effects was diarrhea and he has that already because of health problems. I would appreciate any feedback.
