Dear Ms. Todaro,
While I'm not aware of the reason you no longer wish to take Namenda,you should first consult with your physician to determine what is the best course of action to take. Speaking with your physician about your options can help you make an informed decision, regarding whether or not you should continue this medication or possibly switch to another one, and whether side effects may arise, especially if you have other medical problems. Also, consider having a relative or a trusted friend join you during this discussion. It's always helpful to have a second person present to pick up on anything you may have missed.
You MUST talk to your doctor about this. Everyone is different. Never stop a medication without checking with the doctor first.
Hi, Ms. Mary Todaro,
In general, do check with the doctor about any change of medicine. If you have bad side effects from namenda, talk to the doctor and he/she may stop the med and gives you another type of drug for it.
