My wife has been giagnosed with early dementia and is taking exelon.
She sleeps over 16 hours a day and I am wondering is this is related to the meds.

@Exelon Welcome Exelon! This site is very helpful and encouraging. I have learned alot here and everyone has been very supportive.

Sleeping a lot can be due to some meds. Not sure about ALZ meds. How long ago was your wife diagnosed? At what stage would she be at? (For stages go to & click on "stages" button on left.)

I know depression can also make one sleep alot. Be sure your wife gets to eat and drink enough. Not enough water, or dehydration can also cause confusion.

Again welcome, and I would like to hear more of your story. -Sharon
