Side effects of Aricept
My husband started 5mg of aracept last evening and is complaining of numbness in his left arm. Is this from the medication or something more sinister?
To have these symptoms properly diagnosed, you will need to see a health professional. You may require a physical examination. Tingling in one arm is not a typical side effect of Aricept. There are other medical conditions which could be causing this, including a stroke or cardiac conditions.
