CAN HUSBAND WITH ALZHEIMER'S TAKE GALANTAMINE AND HUPERZINE A?
Q Dear Dr. V,
My husband has Alzheimer's and has been taking ThinkingCap, which has been helpful. He now remembers more and can do more things for himself, such as eating without assistance and dressing himself, and even attending to himself in the bathroom. Can he take galantamine with the ThinkingCap? I would really be thankful for a response.

A Dear VV,
There is scientific literature that supports both huperzine A (found in ThinkingCap) and galantamine in their role of memory preservation - and possibly some memory restoration in the case of galantamine. (See my comments above about combining galantamine with other cognitive enhancers.) It seems plausible that combining these two items may yield synergistic improvement.

However, remember that Alzheimer's disease is a medical condition and should be evaluated and directed by a doctor.

Good luck to both of you.

Dr V
