    My Mother has altzheimers and has had it for about 10 years All medication has given awful side effects the least effect is dizziness which is useless. She was put on memantine 20mg a day but became spaced out and very dizzy so it was agreed to stop taking them and wierdly enough there was significant improvement within a week, we asked perhaps she could use the drug at a lower dosage but was told it was all or nothing is this right ?
