Regarding the list of caregiving strategies in the "How We've Managed" post below...please check with your physician before combining an antihistamine (or any other non prescription drug or supplement) with Aricept (see Mary's comment and my reply under the "How We've Managed" post).

Don't give your patient any supplement or non-prescription drug without asking your doctor and pharmacist first, and even then research drug interactions yourself.  Always take a full list of medications, prescription and non-prescription, to your loved one's doctor appointments.

My thanks to Mary, who noticed the possible adverse effects of Mom's chlor-tabs with Aricept, and took the time to draw it to my attention.
