My husband has been on Razadyne and Namenda for some time along with Amantadine for his Parkinsonism symptoms. I am wondering if at any point during the LBD journey have you been advised to or decided to discontinue the dementia meds?

Wife, I'm also wife... the day my husband stopped walking I could have stopped all that--the Senemet, the memantine, donepezil--the whatever- it wouldn't matter. The disease wins no matter what. All my sweet hubster is on now is morphine as often as I can bear giving it to him. It's just a matter of how you deal with it. The only thing good about Lewy body is that you can't win!! No hospitals are necessary--or even good!! They would prolong this agony either for monetary gain or because they're sworn to--they may have even lost the ability to tell the difference. Love him and let go when you must. This is so hard...
