I've been given some "memory" pills, how will they help me?
At the present moment the most common way to treat Alzheimer's disease and related dementias is through medication to enhance memory, thinking skills, language and mood. How these medications work is through their ability to preserve the functions of the nerve endings in your brain cells to transmit messages from one cell to the next. There has been much success for some people in the early stages with taking medication. Being active and staying physically and mentally active in addition to taking medication has shown positive results in slowing the progression of the disease. At this time there is no known cure for dementia but researchers are actively pursuing many positive studies in hopes for a cure in the future.
