Only thing that'll happen will be that his Alzheimer's symptoms will return.

Depending on how long he was taking it, there may be no consequences at all. Aricept has an efficacy of about 6-8 months, depending on the individual. What it does is help the brain map around damage. It does not prevent damage in any way. At some point it is no longer effective. If you need the long-term study information, ask, and I will find post here. My wife has early-onset ALZ so I did a lot of research. This is an area where I downloaded research papers. I may still have them available.
