My mother was prescribed this for mild Dementia. I do not see any reviews for this purpose. I would appreciate any info on this topic including side effects.
It is often used particularly when the dementia has an element of anxiety. Some people it helps, some it does nothing for them. It is not labeled for this purpose by the FDA. This isn't because it can't be used, this is because the manufacturer hasn't submitted studies on it for this purpose.
