Namenda has possibly slowed the disease somewhat. It is no silver bullet but it is worth taking.I have seen the results and I believe it has helped.

Comment:
My Mother is more confused now than she was before she started on this junk. I think the Doctors are to quick to medicate when someone has a slight case of Dementia. She is off of it now and were waiting for her to get back to where she was before. She was on the drug 1 month and 1 month to long.
