Donepezil/placebo Trial

Hi, im new to this forum:)
My dad has had Parkinson’s for over 10 years now and atm things are really really tough.
Definitely over the last few weeks, he has recently started the Donepezil/placebo trial
Im wondering if anyone on here is taking part in the same thing and how your feeling about it.
I understand your not suppose to see any effect ( if you have been given the real tablet that is) for at least a month but it always makes you think has changes happen because of this tablet.
Many thanks.
