    My Mother is 90 and was using aricept 5 mg but started having vivid dreams after 8 months. I started her on the 4.6 mg patch in the morning each day and after almost 2 weeks, she was so lethargic all she wantedx to do was sit in her chair, she is normally very active. He Dr. stopped the patch and after 1 week, she is much improved with more energy.

    I have been on it for just over a month. My doctor started me with the low dosage. Now I am on the 9.5mg/24 hours. I have noticed some change for the better with my memory, but still have some confusion and panic attacks. Howvever, I am very optimistic that this medication can help me.
