Should Namenda in addition to Aricept help?
My dad has dementia and his doctor(neurologist) added Namenda a few months ago because he thinks it should be taken with Aricept. We have not noticed any difference at all. Should the two medicines together really help slow down his deterioration? I should mention that he is only 72 but a little past the moderate stage according to the neurologist. His primary doctor doesn't think much can help at this point so I'm not sure what to think. He is also a type 2 diabetic and had to stop taking Geodone because of the contraindications. So far he is doing ok but not great without it. Just wondering what others experiences have been with these medications. (Not much luck when I tried to do a search.)
