I am new to this forum. My dear husband was diagnosed with Parkinson’s 2 years ago age 56. He has has severe cognitive decline in the last 6 months but physically he is great, strides out on walks etc. I got an emergency appointment and it looks like they will diagnose dementia. We are upset and shocked but they want to start him on Rivastigmine …I am not keen as it seems to increase falls which he does not have. Does anyone ave any thoughts on it?

Take advice before staring this medication. My experience is that it did not do a great deal for their dementia and actually caused a very nasty side effect. Research online.

Thank you, that is how I feel.
