 I WAS JUST WONDERING WHAT IS THE PROGRESSION OF ALZ, MY MOM HAS A MILD CASE AND SHE IS ON MEDICATION, BUT I WAS WONDERING HOW LONG BEFORE IT BECOMES MODERATE TO EXTREME.

There is no way to tell. A person with AZ may have mild symptoms all their (AZ) life and never progress while others progress quickly even while on many medications.

My mom was diagnosed with Alz 7 years ago and although she seemed to progress at a fairly rapid rate the first year, since then, the progression has been very slow. She is on two medications, Namenda and Aricept and her physician now feels that the meds are helping to keep her status quo.
