Hello Hardware. Just reading up on the drug, I agree that a gradual, easing up, taper be done. You might ask your mothers doctor or pharmacist how to go about this. I'm no doctor but I'd not suddenly stop the drug. I wonder if its helped her? Is that the reason shes wanting to stop taking the aricept? Best wishes,
