Alzheimer's Disease & Dementia Message Board


Alzheimer's Disease & Dementia Board Index


It is listed as a medication for dementia. A doctor has to prescribe it. I doubt if taking it when you are healthy would prevent Alzheimers. Perhaps some doctors prescribe it when they think it might be Dementia but are not sure. I never heard of it being used for amy other condition.

My mother tried it. She got unstoppable diarreah. She couldn't make it to the toilet. This went on for 5 days with no improvement, and the doctor said, "stop taking it. It doesn't help much anyway at her age and her stage of the disease." (over 90, already several years of bizarre behavior behind her.)

I would stay away from any brain changing drugs unless a neurologist really thinks it will help.
