Hello Everyone,
 
My spouse has AD, we are in what I believe is Stage 5-6.  DH was pretty steady for about a year stage 4-5.  He was on Namenda only, twice daily for a year, then a few months back his doc added Aricept.  All was good for 2-3 months as DH was seemingly more alert and engaged in his surroundings.  Then boom, couple months ago he began to really change.  Mood swings, way more forgetful.  Recently even hallucinating.  His regular doc has now decided to send us to Neurology.  Meanwhile, no med changes except for the addition of B=12 injections once a month.  We have seen a great decline in his MMSE.  DH is in early 70's.  I believe we can trace changes going back to his mid 60's, but not diagnosed until late 60's as he is/was a master at covering up.
 
Glad to become a member, and looking forward to sharing with you all.

Hi there and a Warm Healing Well welcome to you ......

I am so sorry to hear that your DH suffers from this horrid Disease as well BUT I do know that you have come to a great lil family that will be here to help you and support you threw the times you need it .as well you can help I am sure with your knowlegde and from your experiences with hubby

Sounds like a good idea to see a Neuro

Is there anything in particular that seems to set him off or is it just random
Both meds are great for this AD as you prob know

I do hope you have read some of the other threads........plenty of great info and you will come to know the others thru them and by introducing self as you have already .........

It is a great place I do pray you will stay with us

Again
WELCOME

God BLess
