    My 88 y.o. Mother in law is forgetful, but still lives at home. Has trouble remembering to eat, so Aricept was started. we stopped it after two days due to Nausea, vomiting. I will oppose having it restarted, side effects being worse than the condition we're treating.

    I am a 63 and in my third year of being clear from breast cancer. It took me to clear my head. I am still having some forgetfulness and kept thinking it was the treatment. The nuerologist gave me some testing that turned out to be okay, but he still wanted me to try the Aricept. I have been having cramps and nasuea. I am not going to continue on it, unless I do get worse. I still work partime.
