I was having trouble remembering the correct routes to get me to local stores and couldn't remember what I ate for breakfast. An MRI showed calcium formations on my brain. My doctor prescribed Namenda and for 5 years I functioned normally on 1 pill a day. Then I started having problems and was increased to 2 pills a day. I no longer have any unusual memory problems.

She recalls much of our childhood and our adult lives but recent (past 6~8 years) seem to be gone forever. ... Show Full Comment

My mother has had several strokes, but at 89 is very alert and active. Since being put on this drug she has become extremely agitated and paranoid. I've asked the doctor to cut the dose from 10 mgs a day to 5. Several of you have suggested this same response to the drug. Is there anything else out there that is effective? I want my mother back!!

Comment:
My husband has dementia caused by radiation on a non-malignant brain tumor. He should never have had the radiation, but when something is an emergency, we do what the doctor says. He's been on Namenda for quite a while and sleeps most of the time. also, I have no clue if this is a side effect, but he makes noises all the time and it drives me nuts. Once in a while he's quiet and it's a ... Show Full Comment
