Seeing the consultant next week and we DO expect answers.Rivastigmine is used to help halt, for a short time, the further deterioration of memory problem associated with Parkinsons.
Unfortunately, it will not stop or reverse the symptoms but it just may, if it can be tolerated,(many cannot cope with the many side effects), MAY help slow them down for a time.
If no improvement is seen in 3 months then the treatment will be stopped
The ultimate treatment time is 2 years, it's discontinued after that, BuT that gives me another 2 years with my OH hopefully knowing me and that is worth the whole world to me.
Early days yet to see what happens,just 2 weeks,hence my original post on how long before I see an improvement.
If anyone has been prescibed this drug then please reply.
