: Can someone give me a good website on the medications used for this disease. Or, if there are not that many used can you list them for me. Thank you. THERE IS A PRESCRIPTION CALLED ARICEPT THAT IS USED FOR PATIENTS WITH ALZHEIMER'S. THEY START OUT WITH A SMALL DOSE ONE MONTH, THEN IT IS INCREASED THE FOLLOWING MONTH. IT IS VERY EXPENSIVE BECAUSE THERE IS NO GENERIC OF THIS DRUG. (APPROX 176.00 FOR 30 PILLS) It has side effects, it made my mother very aggitated, angry and hateful, so we took her off of it and she is somewhat better in her disposition now. Hope this has helped.
