Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly diminishes memory and thinking skills and, eventually, the ability to carry out simple tasks. It is the most common cause of dementia in older adults.

Older adults with Alzheimer’s disease are particularly vulnerable to side effects from various medications. Contact your healthcare provider if you are experiencing any medication side effects and make sure to review your medication list at each healthcare visit.
