Rotigotine Patches

My wife was diagnosed with PD nearly 6 years ago and has been started on Rotigotine patches a few months ago. Since then it would appear that her memory has deteriorated and have been told by the consultant that this would not be caused by the patches but just a progression of the decease. Has anyone else had this type of experience?
