Re: Use of Namenda for beginning stages dementia
I totally agree with Rekem. By the time you see symptoms they are past the early stages where these meds would truly be beneficial. Why would you want to prolong the mid stages, especially if they are struggling against the disease as my Mom was. She had to get worse to get better. By that I mean that she was depressed, anxious, stressed, and full of aggression in the mid stages. Once she lost enough of her cognition to lose the ability to know what she was losing her disposition improved tremendously. No, I can't understand what she is saying now but she says it with a smile and that mischievous twinkle in her eye. I will take that any day. So I am not a fan of handling them a day longer in the mid stages.
