I accidently gave my dad 12mg instead of 6mg a day I didn't realize it until after a month later Now I am giving him 6mg and he is complaining of headaches also very sleepy and not walking very good. His doctor will not return my phone calls untill after the week end. Is this normal response to the change of medication?

Everytime I have taken this medication, it has made me nauseous, vomit, dizzy, accelerated heartbeat, and paranoid.

i HAVE TAKEN THIS FOR A YEAR, NOW. STRONGER DOSES WHEN i STARTED. GRADUALLY LESSENED, AND NOW TAKE THIS WITH NAMENDA XR 14MG ONCE DAILY WITH SOME MODERATE RESULTS FOR SHORT TERM MEMORY LOSS. TRIED QUITTING 2 MONTHS AGO. AFTER 3-4 WEEKS NOTICED MEMORY WAS GETTING WORSE, SO RESTARTED. I DON'T LIKE TAKING MEDICATION, BUT LOOKS LIKE I REALLY NEED THIS ONE, :(

I have not recovered memory that I have lost, but I'm not losing memory as quickly as I was. In fact, recall seems to take less time now.
