My elderly parent (82 y/o) has been treated with the usual drugs for several years now - Aricept and Namendia - without any real noticeable changes for the better. (Of course, in order to really determine any beneficial changes she would have to totally stop taking these medications which could possibly put her back to "Square One." So this is not an option.) However, now her doctor is suggesting we try her on Ritalin in the hopes that it may help her thought process, memory, along with her apathy. It is going to be a trial study and as her general physical health is otherwise good, I am going to allow her to be a part of this group.
