My elderly father with dementia has been on donepezil for a couple of years. I haven't seen any improvement in his dementia at all - it's got worse. I am thinking of stopping it. Has anyone else found dementia medication works for their elderly relative?

I was wondering what people think of this article. Healthy pateints will be removed from their GP's surgery list if they have not had an appointment in five years. I have not visted my partcice in the last five years and this cost cutting exerscies could also leave elderly and vulnerable people deprived of primary care.

I had a mole and in 2011, it recd the most sun exposure. I only saw it once in awhile due to it being located on my spine area. Until it was poking out and had white crust, I then saw a dermatologist who removed it. I believe he aggravated it after removing and it's spreading. The tumor was T4b NX MX considered stage IIc or more. Has anyone felt pressure on the area?
