Re: when is it time to come off of Namenda?

I would take her off Namenda if it isn't doing anything at all to make her better. Five years on it is very long. Most doctors agree that it doesn't do anything much after a few months. I would advise you to stop wasting money on it, but check with her doctor just to get his opinion.

You are on a hard path - I was there. My Mom lived around 8 years after beginning to show signs of Dementia. She died in December of last year.

Love,

Martha
