Customer Reviews

My husband is back

My husband has suffered advanced Alzhemeir and was prescribed Exelon. For the 3 weeks he has taken this med, his libido has shot up. We’ve been off sex for ages but that has now changed. I love the efficacy and ‘side effect’ of this drug.

Exelon capsules work

Alzheimer almost robbed me of my sweet mum but that’s a reality that will never see the light of the day. Since she started taking Exelon she is less aggressive and looks much happier. We all are!
