Has anyone else experienced that? Did you stop the drug?
Although I can't say the aricept did cause worse memory, I can say there was little to no improvement in my sick room mates memory on aricept, but his dementia is due to failing health and lack of oxygen as he will not quit smoking and is very sick with COPD. Although his memory is poor, he begs and evens scours the parking lot for butts, let the dr know the memory is not improving, there are other meds and it may more be your dad's health failing as well, the dr will be a better judge of that. My room mate had worsening OCD symptoms that may or may not have been triggered by the aricept as this is not new, but did seem worse. Best of luck, patti
