My mother received a prescription for this drug(Reminyl), and took it for several days in early 2005. Within a couple of days of taking the drug, she became totally dis-oriented and psychotic. She forgot who she was, as well as who her family members were. In her total confusion, she thought that I was her late husband (my father), and wondered why I left her for another woman (my wife).

My mother took this drug and it made her go from regular person to full dementia in a few weeks. The nurse at the hospital said he had seen it before, so we took her off of it to see. A couple weeks later she was somewhat better, and after a year, she was mostly better. Even years later though she is weakened from it.

She forgot who she was, as well as who her family members were. In her total confusion, she thought that I was her late husband (my father), and wondered why I left her for another woman (my wife). The prescription was stopped within 4-5 days, she went through a "detox" process in the hospital, however she NEVER returned to her "slightly forgetfull" state. She's been "out in left field", and living in an assisted living facility, ever since

My mother has taken Reminyl for two and a half years and I do believe it is keeping her from becoming incontentant. Her memory is severally impaired only remembering anything from 60 years ago.
