Combination Therapy for Alzheimer's Disease (Aricept and Namenda)

"Combination therapy can help to maintain Alzheimer's patients’ quality of life by preserving cognitive skills, basic activities, social behaviour and communication skills".

Combination Therapy for Alzheimer's Aricept Namenda)
Most Alzheimer's dementia specialist are familiar with Combination Therapy for Alzheimer's. I often wonder how many personal care physicians are aware?

My mother is on the combination of Aricept (Donepezil) and Namenda (Memantine). I am convinced that this combination had a profound positive effect on my mother, Dorothy. It worked for us.

I have written about this many times. For example, The Combination of Aricept and Namenda Helps Slow the Rate of Decline in Alzheimer's Patients , andAricept and Namenda from Day One -- This is my Belief .

This time around I want to make something very clear, the biggest benefits we received from the combination were in the area of behavior and communication skill. I can say that with confidence.
