My 79 yr old dad has been on Aricept for about 1 yr and appears to exhibit some inappropriate sexual behaviors such as exposing himself, masturbating and touching unfamiliar females. We're not sure whether Aricpet is the cause. Has anyone else experienced this?
It might but alzheimers disease has a phase that that happens to some people. Are you taking care of him? Talk to the dr. He may be able to give him something that would curb the behavior.
