Why is Donepezil hydrochloride prescribed?
Aricept is one of the few drugs that can provide some relief from the symptoms of early Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease causes physical changes in the brain that disrupt the flow of information and interfere with memory, thinking, and behavior. Aricept can temporarily improve brain function in some Alzheimer's sufferers, although it does not halt the progress of the underlying disease.
