Re: question about alzheimer's disease

Depression and Alzheimer are caused by different malfunctions in the brain. Depression can have some of the same symptoms as Alzheimer. Someone with Alzheimer can have depression as well. Depression does not cause Alzheimer. I did see in my Mom, then when she realized she was showing signs of Alzheimer, that she became depressed. So Alzheimer can cause depression but not the other way around. Hope that helps....

Welcome to the forum.....
