I take the medication once a day and have been for over 6 mos. I can truly say it is helping my memory. I hope it continues to help with my short term memory loss. Thank you Dr. M.

We started my dad on this medication 13 years ago, he was having alot of memory problems and forgetfulness. It was amazing the results. It was such a huge change in him. He was better then he had been in years. After two years we did start to see a slight decline yet he was still better then before he took the medicaton as time went on his decline has gotten worst. Its been 13 years and he still takes it the doctor is giving me a hard time now and wants to stop most medications he is in bad shape..but for these 13 years up until the last 3 his decline was very slow and he enjoyed his life he had made a huge change in him for the better, now he is in end stage..and this is so hard but aricept gave me back my dad for many good years.
