Has anyone heard about Dimebon.  It's an antihistime that is in trial studies for use for alzheimer's. I do not think it's available as an antihistimine in the US - can someone confirm?  My mom has an upcoming doctor's appointment and I would like to mention this drug to the doctor.
Thank you!

Antihistamines make ppl with dementia too antsy,edgy.........Some can take them,but most cannot......
