Expensive? Compared to what? For those families facing the prospect, the
heartbreaking emotional drain and staggering expense of putting a family
member in Alzheimers care, we will grasp wildly at any straw, a bit like
what I am doing right now. Eugen, in the US, the cost of Alzheimers care is
often largely carried by the family and it is typically 5000 Euro/month, and
sometimes more. This can go on for years.
This round of bexarotene is on me.
The warnings are mostly to do with pregnancy, which I can assure you is not
a factor in this particular family member's life. OK, so I have sent this
around to the fam, and we are getting the goddam hell on this right away.
The clock is ticking loudly.
