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.
