Hi.

Neither can I.

How much did you take?

My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Nothing really works, from what I've read. I don't think that donepezil and memantine are as effective as doctors once convinced themselves they were. The only drug that might have some value is lithium when taken in small amounts. I doubt more than 150 mg/day of lithium carbonate is necessary. I just bought some lithium orotate for Mom. I couldn't get her doctor to prescribe lithium, so that was the best I could come up with. I got the Weyland brand lithium orotate that delivers 20mg of elemental lithium.
