Close monitoring and regular
reevaluation of the person who has Alzheimer's disease are very important during
treatment with medicine. As the disease progresses and symptoms change, the
person's medicine needs often change. If you are a caregiver for someone with
Alzheimer's disease, be alert for adverse drug reactions or side effects that
further impair the person's ability to function.
