Customer Question
My husband is having...

My husband is having rather serious problems remembering many things, so he ordered the highly recommended "Enhance Mind IQ". He is on Aricept, and we wondered if it is safe to take the Aricept with the Enhance Mind IQ"?

Doctor's Assistant: Do you have frequent headaches? Any issues with coordination or balance?

No.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

My husband is 79 now, and in quite good health. He was struck by a motorcycle in a show, and left for dead, but in the hospital later in Austria for a long time. He did have quite a blow on the face and head. Years later he had an incident where he couldn't remember anything for probably 18 hours. They weren't sure what the problem was but treated him with Tegritol feeling it was an epileptic incident. Later on he quit taking it and seemed fine except for a few incidents. A few years ago he had a Triple A operation. The clot which began the incident was

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that makes your head feel worse or better?

Serious No he survived the whole thing well, AND has not had many problems. He walks and keeps busy, but the memory is failing. He keeps trying with everything, eats right and weighs around 153 and is 5ft 7inches. He is from Yugoslavia , but is German , and his people were in Tito's concentration camp for four years , escaped when 11 yrs.

He should avoid taking Enhance mind IQ for these reasons;

1) The ingredients are not clear in the product description. So it is difficult to ascertain the drug interactions.

2) Majority of the supplements do not have clinical studies with the drugs; so many times drug interactions cannot be predicted as there are nos scientific trials done.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
