Stopping Aricept and Nemenda
Has anybody experience with ending Aricept and/or Nemanda therapy? Aricept 4-1/2 years; Namenda 5 months.
My particular concern is possible acceleration of the decline. A secondary concern is the possible personality altering affect of ceasing these meds.
Googling the question brings me to the conclusion it's just not that simple because the effects of these meds appear to be irreversible. So far I have read that upon stopping these drugs the con's are worse than the pro's.
Not one site has indicated how to properly stop; taper off or cold turkey. Not one. (The doc will be consulted in due time).
