Hello everyone.
 
I went with my sister on Tuesday to the hospital. She was given that memory test(I dont know the proper term for it) The last one that she did 1 year ago she scored 13. This time she only scored 9 confused   We were expecting her to score lower than last time because her symptoms are definatly getting worse. Yesterday while she was at my house she didnt make it to the toilet on time and I had to help her clean up and change her clothes. She realy caught me out because I thought that I was getting to know the signs of her needing to go to the bathroom. It seems that we are going to have to change the routine a bit and take her to the toilet every couple of hours just incase.
 
As I thought he would, the Doctor has decided to stop prescribing Aricept. I just hope that she doesnt become more anxious or anything without it because the Doctor made it quite clear that they wouldnt put her back on it without "real" good reason.

Drs normally discontinue medication when the MMSE is below 13...........

Hmmmmm my dad is beyond using that test and he is still taking Namanda (sp?). Is this bad for him? He had been taking Aricept, but they switched hoping it would help. I don't really see that it has, but maybe he would be worse w/o it.

Blessings!

Ask the Dr about putting her on Razadyne.I've been on it 4 yrs,with no side effects.She needs to be on something or she will fade faster.
