  1. Thank you doctor ! I appreciate all your help and will keep you posted.
  2. Hi Dr Okun You have been a great source of knowledge in this very difficult road. So from your rsponse I gather you may not be a fan of namzaric. Do you believe in just taking aricept alone would be just as helpful then namzaric. And how would I go about weaning my mom off. I am very scared. My Mom has just plain namenda that I can just reducing little by little. Any help I would be grateful. Thank you !
  3. Medication Help

    Thank you so much ! Do you think taking the Namzaric in the afternoon would be ok ? I appreciate any help I am trying to get this regimene done. I noticed if I give my mom Namzaric and Siminet within the same hour she gets very confused ! Is this possible ? Or just the disease of dementia ?
  4. Any know interaction between the two ? I noticed if I give my mom the two meds within the same hour she gets very confused. Any suggestions ? Thank you for all your help !!!
  5. Do you think reducing it to the 14 mg /10 mg may help ? Or do you think taking namzaric at that dosage is not helpful ?
  6. Hi Dr. Okun, My 82 year old Mom has Parkinson dementia for the past three years. I am hoping you can assist me. About three weeks ago my Mom's neuro put her on Namzaric, ( She is still on the last week of the 28 day starter back ). Because this is a combination of Namenda and Aricept, I am giving this to my Mom in the morning. I am aware this should be given before bedtime but when my Mom was on 10 mg Aricept alone for 2 years she had horrific nightmares so I started giving it to the AM about a year ago. The following is her medication schedule: 5 AM Carp/Lev 7:30 Namzaric 10:00 AM Carp/Levodopa 2:00 PM Carp/Levodopa 5:00 PM Carp/Levodopa 7:00 PM amlodipin My Mom is always extremely tired now, (the neuro has stated unless your left hand shaking bothers her, she can go to 3 carp/Lev a day. ) Her lack of energy is to the point where she could walk the mall in the morning with her nurses aide three weeks ago, and today she lacks any sort of energy for walking, Do you think the timing of her meds need to be adjusted ? I know Aricept is in Namzaric but do you think I can retry before bedtime again ? or do you think it will be the same result ? My Mom has always gone to bed early,( 7:30 PM) as she is an early riser. Any help will be greatly appreciated !!
