Our new neurologist talked about this & I also did - during our visit on 10/10/13 - we are going to see the results of the EEG and taking off the Parkinson's meds and starting the Baclofen before we decided to try the Exelon patch, but she was definetly interested in it.

We used the Exelon patch with my mom -- added it in after the Namenda and Aricept seemed to work less. It definitely helped. Although we didn't think we saw a difference when she started on it, if we had days where she missed it, we saw a BIG difference. It's expensive, but we thought it was worthwhile to give her every advantage, especially before she was moved to the care center.

Oh okay Leslie, no worries. I'm trying to read up on it but you know how sometimes the Internet tells a little too much info. And then it just causes folks to freak out.

My Spark was being crazy & showing me having more than 1 post for every time I posted something - I deleted what I was going to say about the Exelon patch - as I thought it was a duplicate post also. Geesh.

I'm pretty sure I said - glad to see you posting - and that I had heard about the Exelon patch and it was in my notes to discuss with the new neurologist we are seeing on 10/10.

Grace, I don't know of anyone locally who has used the patch, but maybe some of the other members do.

So glad to have you back! We understand that with this illness it can pull us away from internet time now and then....so just know we understand, but are glad to see you again.

Hey gang, I have been quite absent from Sparkpeople lately due to an accident with my motherback in March. She fell and beyond her hip/leg and get dementia has progressively worsened. She was previously on two memory meds, Namenda and a generic of Aricept. Afterthis trauma I had tokeep mom in a care center permanently. The Dr put her on a new med, the Exelon patch. Wanted to know what your thoughts were and whether you've heard any good or bad stuff about it or even experienced anything with it.

Any info is appreciated.

BTW, I am back on SP as much as I can be again.
