I'm sorry to hear of your FIL's diagnosis. I am not familiar with the meds they have in the UK but they have my grandmother on Namenda and it's seems to work OK but not the best. It seems her bad days are outnumbering her good lately so I may have to talk to her doctor about this.

Lyn hasn't been around lately. I'm not quite sure why, health reasons, family, etc maybe...

I think a lot of the medications that are available in the US are also available in the UK. Like Aricept, Namenda, Exelon, Rasidyne. Their Market names might be different. I think the Alzheimer's Society in the UK would be a great place to get more answers. Here is the link to their webpage with the helpline you can call there http://www.alzheimers.org.uk/helpline

Good Luck
