My Mom 90yo with dementia has been on Aricept for 2 years. Her memory has gradually declined over that time to the point she needs 24 hour a day assistance. We are considering stopping the Aricept as it doesn't seem to be improving the quality of her life. We are not interested in increasing the strength or in switching to one of the other AD drugs. We are more interested in just letting nature take its course since the meds are reported to only delay the progression of the disease.
What are your experiences with stopping Aricept and other drugs used to treat Alzheimers Disease?
