Generic Aricept and Namenda Update

Good news on Aricept, major price relief coming soon.

Plus, new formulations of Aricept and Namenda offer great promise.

I am getting a lot of search hits from Google on the articles I wrote about generic Aricept and Namenda previously.

I decided to put up an update that includes the currrent state of affairs on the patent expiration for both Aricept and Namenda and when the generic formulation will be available to consumers in the United States.

Dotty’s Erratic Behavior Resurfaces and SO Does My Stomach Ache

I still have the minor version of the stomach ache today — right now as I am typing this. I had forgotten what it is like to have a stomach ache all day long, every day. I had assumed that I had just gotten use to the way things are/were.

There have been some very subtle changes in Dotty’s behavior over the last several weeks. At first, I didn’t think much about it.

What’s the Difference Between Alzheimer’s and Dementia?

In a nutshell, dementia is a symptom, and AD is the cause of the symptom. When someone is told they have dementia, it means that they have significant memory problems as well as other cognitive difficulties, and that these problems are severe enough to get in the way of daily living…..

Too often, patients and their family members are told by their doctors that the patient has been diagnosed with “a little bit of dementia.” They leave the doctor’s visit with a feeling of relief that at least they don’t have Alzheimer’s disease (AD). There is great confusion about the difference between “dementia” and “AD.” The confusion is felt on the part of patients, family members, the media, and even healthcare providers. This article provides information to reduce the confusion by defining and describing these two common and often poorly understood terms.
