All drugs and supplements may have side effects. It is important to let the lead physician know about intake and changes in a health regimen. Look for side effects and how common they may be. Also double check on the recommended dose and how often can it be reduced or increased for ultimate benefits. Blood profiles are very helpful to track progress or possible health problems.

Along with this information, please let the doctor know so you can form a stronger team in providing the best possible dementia care to someone you love. Always question and research any pharmaceutical prescriptions the doctor may want to administer to someone diagnosed with Alzheimer/dementia. Avoid administering any medications that affect brain functions for some living with dementia.
