 Alzheimers / Dementia
Alzheimer's disease (AD), also known in medical literature as Alzheimer disease, is the most common form of dementia. There is no cure for the disease, which worsens as it progresses, and eventually leads to death. It was first described by German psychiatrist and neuropathologist Alois Alzheimer in 1906 and was named after him.[1] Most often, AD is diagnosed in people over 65years of age,[2] although the less-prevalent early-onset Alzheimer's can occur much earlier. In 2006, there were 26.6 ...

Learn more Somazine details here. Some studies have shown that it helps with mental alertness and improves memory, so you may want to ask her doctor about it.

Bexarotene for Alzheimer's
4 Replies RSS
Hi - has anyone else heard about the research being done on Bexarotene as a viable Alzheimer's treatment? Apparently they have been testing it in mice and it appears to quickly and effectively stop (and even reverse) degeneration in the brain tissue. They basically took mice which were genetically engineered to exhibit Alzheimer's symptoms (yeah, cruel, I know) and observed how their brains would get built up with amyloid beta peptides (which are basically thought to exist in excess as plaque in the brains of people suffering from Alzheimer's and it causes the blocking up of neurons and cell death). And of course the mice would exhibit some of the classic early signs such as forgetfulness. Anyways, Scientific American has described some of the findings: "with just a sing... ...

Early Onset alzheimers dementia

I was diagnosed with EOD of the Alzheimers type in 2007, by mid 2010, I was so ill, I asked my Doctor for a shot of Adrenalin: after much procrastination, the Doctor prescribed Cymbalta 30 mg, a drug not directed at A/D, with the proviso that if I felt suicidal, I was to stop immediately......well the rest is history.....34 months later, and I have halted this horrible disease, and apart from feeling like a dog that has had distemper and survived, I am living a normal life once again......as of this current moment, 04-04-2013, ...I still take only 30 mg and feel as confident and as good as I did in 2003..........I do not know what I have found here, but it certainly warrants immediate research by an astute drug company.... ## Hi, Tony! Very glad that it has helped you so much. Cymbalta ... ...

Ridding of Lipitor got rid of Alzheimer's symptoms
3 Replies RSS
My mother was on Lipitor for over 10 years, since 6 years ago she developed Alzheimer's symptoms, she short term and med term memory is gone, kept asking the same question. She has a lot of confusion and is not confident anymore. I saw the news about Lipitor 3 weeks ago, and test it by stopping her Lipitor med. 2 weeks later, she is 85% recovered! She is like a different person now, asking me detail questions about more complex subjects, and actually wanting to learn to use the remote control! I am glad to have her back in my life, she is back from Hell. ## btw she was only taking 10mg of Lipitor. It was taken as precaution only, she exercise regularly and eats very lean. ## Hello, St Leung! How is your mother doing? Due to the side effects that such a medication can cause, I just d... ...

I need klonopin for anxiety stress from being caretaker for alzheimer father. From Chicago to take care of him. Cant afford to fly to dr. in Chgo and dont know anyone here in Phoenix. I am living w my dad in Mesa,but will go metro phoenix. I am not a drug user or abuser. Given script before left Chgo,1mg tid and its out,no refills. Hard to handle this and klonopin helped so much. ## Hello, Gary! How are you? I'm very sorry about what you're going through and wish the best to you and your family. As to the Klonopin, due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, a PCP won't be able to prescribe it for you. You'll need to see a specialist. The easiest thing to do will most likely be to set yourself up with a new PCP there and then have them refer you to someo... ...

Thank you! ## My husband has suffered with what we thought were complex partial Seizures but now they are saying they are not seizures and they want to put him on Nemenda ## The correct drug name is Namenda, it contains the active ingredient Memantine. ## My husband was on Paxil, Zyprexa, Topamax, Namenda and one other thing but I cant remember the name. He went off these COLD TURKEY about three years. He got very sick but then got better. Last year a situation with his father happened and he has acted and done some very strange things, which is too long to list.
