Join this second session of a four-part webinar series to review the benefits and limitations of presently available medications for Alzheimer's dementia and those in various degrees of development. This session seeks to promote the importance of discontinuing medications that may worsen cognitive functions.

Participants will be able to appreciate the efficacy, limitations and adverse effects of various medications available for the management of dementia. Given the potentially deleterious effects of some medications on cognitive functions, emphasis also will be placed on which medications to prescribe and which ones to discontinue.

During this session, participants will be able to:

  • Know the uses, limitations and adverse effects of available medication for Alzheimer's Dementia
  • Understand ongoing research to develop medications for Alzheimer's dementia
  • Recognise that many medications commonly used may worsen the degree of cognitive dysfunction.
