Aricept 10mg

Aricept (Donepezil Hydrochloride) is a medicine that can be used in all stages of Alzheimers disease. It can help to slow down the progression of the dementia and other symptoms.

While the use of Aricept can help to slow down Alzheimers disease, it will still continue to progress with the passing of time. For the best results, Aricept has to be taken daily. If doses are skipped then the symptoms can return and they can also get worse in less time. Usually, Aricept is taken with others, but there are times when it is the only one that will be given to treat Alzheimers disease.

Dosing & Administration of Aricept

A patient will need to take the 5 mg of Aricept for about 6 weeks and then an evaluation can be conducted. The doctor will determine how their body is responding to it and mentally how they seem to be reacting to it. There is a good chance they will be bumped up to a daily intake of 10 mg. As the disease progresses, the individual may need to be moved up at various intervals to a higher dose.

The maximum daily intake of it to consider is 23 mg of Aricept. The dose should never be increased or decreased without the approval of the doctor. Take Aricept with food and at the same time daily for the best results. Even if you donít feel hungry, it is very important to continue to eat without skipping meals.

Precautions When Taking Aricept

Not all prescription medicines, over the counter products, or herbal remedies mix well with the use of Aricept. Make sure you tell the doctor about everything you use. Donít add anything new unless you clear it with your doctor first. If you have heart problems, lung problems, or asthma you may find that Aricept makes them worse. You will need to evaluate the pros and cons with your doctor to determine if it is a good idea to use Aricept.
