My father fell in his shower. He was taken to emerg. After being released I insisted he come to live with me. He lay back in his chair with his eyes closed and could not do anything for himself.
I took him to his physician and he prescribed Aricept It was like a miracle. Immediately after taking it he became alert again...he did not remember what he had been like before he took the pill...was able to dress himself etcetc. though he stayed with me for the last six months of his life. As he lay on a gurney at emerg the day he died He said he would get up and dance around the room.
He was 5 days before his 96th birthday!
Anyone who reads this will know that I completely approve of Arricept.
