For Alzheimer’s Disease “I used one month’s worth of the 4.6 patches without any problems. I stepped up to the next level (I think 9.5) and immediately had headaches, nausea and tardive dyskinesia. I went back down to the 4.6 level and now have constant headaches, nausea and ringing in my ears.”

For Alzheimer’s Disease “I have 7 Immediate Family members that had Alzheimer’s and died except my younger sister, Debra Age 61. She resides in a Nursing Home and was admitted 1/13/13. My Dr. put me on the Exelon Patch around that time. I have enjoyed extra energy. I have been diagnosed with mild cognitive loss. I am 63. No adverse side effects from the Exelon Patch. Don’t like black gummy circle it leaves on skin. 9/20/2015, I went to my Pharmacy for my Exelon Patch. The script they gave me was for Rivastigmine, with bright RED sticker: A GENERIC EQUIVALENT DRUG has been dispensed of the same QUALITY and at a LOWER PRICE. UNTRUE. It falls off and sticks to clothes. 1st script at generic price, 2nd and on full price of EXELON. Ins won’t pay”

For Alzheimer’s Disease “My mother was put on the patch several years ago. It is difficult to measure it’s effectiveness with a degenerative disease, but I think she has declined a little slower than others I have seen. However, the cost is TERRIBLE even after Medicare Part D pays.”

For Alzheimer’s Disease “Mom, 85, started using the Exelon Patch (13.9) about one year ago and it has made such a wonderful improvement in her mood, quality of life and cognitive ability. It has given her back a life and provided the family quality time to enjoy her. Before the patch, her memory was poor, she was agitated and continually negative, suspicious and lashing out at everyone. Thanks to the Exelon patch, she’s able to have a normal, peaceful life, without any type of side effects. We feel very Blessed to have been told about the patch and I try to inform people with similar situations of the impact it has had on my mom.”

For Alzheimer’s Disease “My husband has advanced Alzheimer’s and has been on 3 weeks of the 4.6 patch. He has become sexually active after months of no sex, but now wants it every night. I’m afraid to get him to the next level.”
