Default Exelon

The nausea, weight loss, and stomach problems are front and center with this drug. <br> <br>My father is on Aricept for his mild dementia at age 87 (I think he's been nuts his entire life, but no one addressed the problem until he became elderly). It helps, but it has side effects too. A runny nose with sinus inflamation developed with both my parents on the drug. <br> <br>His doctor wanted to switch the Aricept with Exelon. My father was also on Namenda to augment the Aricept. <br> <br>My father is very thin, part of the problem may have come from the Namenda. <br> <br>I refused the Exelon trials, and I am taking him off the Namenda. It makes him sleep too much. <br> <br>Good luck. We have had luck with Aricept. <br> <br>Martha
