Are there withdrawal symptoms to be aware of in stopping the exelon patch cold turkey. It has been an awful experience and we decided to stop it over the weekend.

my mother was put on exelon. tolerated the lower dose, placed on higher patch dose. she has gotten worse over the course of several weeks...while i don't believe she has alzheimers and was not diagnosed with it, it now seems the wrong "drug" for her to take...she has been on it for 6 weeks and honestly, i dont know if i can watch her get worse while waiting for something to work....My dad took aricept and his side affects made him worse-memory-sleep deprived for example that we took him off within 2 months...and he returned to "normal" and gradually got worse instead of overnight getting worse...it was awful...This experience with my mother-even she noticed how awful her memory has gotten...and how confused she is...
