We came away from John's neurologist appointment with prescriptions for three things I had decided to push for:
- Aricept, an Alzheimer's medication that helps many people with LBD
- A blood test of John's B12 level
- An evaluation of his driving
John has an appointment with the Parkinson's specialist at the end of the month, but I didn't want to wait until then to start on an Alzheimer's medication. I've heard reports that at least for some people with LBD it doesn't just stabilize them but brings real improvement. It is going to take a while for me to have any sense of that, but the immediate good news is that it is not causing John stomach upset.
