Cerebral Cortical Atrophy

My Father is 64 years of age and has been a patient of depression for the past 20 years for which he has been taking various medications. recently his doctor asked him to get his CT scan done.the comments on his reports read as follows:
" Mild age related cerebral cortical atrophy."
at present he is taking hydrogine 1.5mg 3 times a day, Ginbex syrup one teaspoon twice daily.
is there a possible way to stop atrophy with medicine.

It is a wasting away of the brain. It is a type of Alzeimers disease. Nutritional supplements help but it is not proven and it is difficult to stop atrophy. Continue taking Ginbex syrup as this is adviced for Alzeimers. Try to involve him in all normal activities, proper diet and medications and this is the way to slow his cerbral cortical atrophy. Take care!
