    Reviewed Aricepton 7/19/2017I'm taking it for MS associated dementia. I have a lot of the listed side effects, but don't know if any of them are related to Aricept. I am on so many Rxs that It's not possible to pinpoint whether a side effect is related to a particular medication. I began taking Aricept at the same time as many other medications. I am still taking it. My cognitive function is worsening. There is no way to know if Aricept has slowed the progression. I currently have no co-pay on generics.

    Reviewed Aricepton 2/25/2017Important to start taking it gradually... break 5 mg in half for a week or two, gradually move up to 5, then 7.5 then 10.. I eventually was taking 20mg for a few years and then was changed to Rivastigmine (Exelon) patch, but in my opinion, a tablet is easier to keep track of than the patch that sometimes falls off in the shower, etc. and you only get 30/mo. and some months have 31 days, so even if you don't have any that fall off, you will still be short at the end of the yr.

    Reviewed Aricepton 11/10/2016Dramatically slowed Alzheimer's progression for 8 years and counting. Too bad insurance will no longer cover it.
