Are dementia meds really helping?
My husband has been using Exelon patches and taking Namenda for several years with an MCI diagnosis . When he asks , “What’s that for?” and I tell him it’s for his memory, he says, “Well it’s not working!” He seems to be right. His memory continues to decline. But, maybe it could be worse, so I’m afraid to stop it. Is there a point at which you can know the meds are no longer slowing the process? Is there a point when you can know MCI has progressed to Alzheimer’s?
