Hi Anne, thanks for the question. With memory loss medications, it is important to start early so as to avoid losing memory in the first place. The medication is meant to slow the disease progression so for your question, you will be better off continuing with the drug, Namenda. The side effects wear after sometimes
Hi, I'm DrBillRPh.
The decision to prescribe medications for "memory loss" can often be a subjective one. Best practices probably advise use of written and verbal test(s) to determine need. Namenda will do no harm other than side effects related to the medication which you have described. Honest discussion with family can also be an important diagnostic tool.
