MULTI - INFARCT DEMENTIA
COULD ARICEPT HELP MY MOTHER WHO HAS MULTI INFARCT DEMENTIA? sHE WAS DIAGNOSED A YEAR AGO BUT HAS PROBABLY HAD THIS FOR ABOUT 4-5 YEARS.
Aricept is not known to have any beneficial effects on "pure vascular disease" such as mutifarct dementia. There is evidence to show benefits when the cause of dementia is Alzheimer`s Disease.
