ARICEPT
ARICEPT® (donepezil HCl) is a prescription medicine to treat mild, moderate and severe Alzheimer's disease.
Dosing Information

Before starting on ARICEPT 23 mg/day, patients should be on ARICEPT 10 mg/day for at least 3 months. The starting dose of ARICEPT is 5 mg/day and can be increased to 10 mg/day after 4-6 weeks. Please take ARICEPT as prescribed by the doctor.
Important Safety Information

    * ARICEPT is not for everyone, including people who are allergic to any ingredients in ARICEPT or to medicines that contain piperidines. People at risk for stomach ulcers or who take certain other medicines should tell their doctor because serious stomach problems, such as bleeding, may get worse.
    * ARICEPT may cause slow heartbeat and fainting. This happens more often in people with heart problems. Call the doctor right away if the patient faints while taking ARICEPT. Lung problems, including asthma, may worsen with the use of ARICEPT. ARICEPT may cause seizures and difficulty passing urine. People of lower weight (those weighing less than 121 lbs) may have increased nausea, vomiting, and decreased weight when taking ARICEPT 23 mg. Tell the doctor if the patient will be having surgery, medical or dental procedures requiring anesthesia while taking ARICEPT.
    * Some people may have nausea, diarrhea, difficulty sleeping, vomiting, or muscle cramps. Some people may feel tired or may have loss of appetite. In a study, many more people taking ARICEPT 23 mg experienced nausea and vomiting than those taking ARICEPT 10 mg. These side effects may get better after the patient takes ARICEPT for a while.
