In addition to the aforementioned drugs, other treatments or therapies may be performed to help control the behavioral symptoms of AD. One or more of the following may be employed:
  • Medications such as antidepressants may be prescribed to help control the behavioral symptoms associated with AD.
  • Creating a safe and supportive environment by adapting the living situations for the AD patient. Reinforcing and strengthening routine habits and minimizing memory-demanding tasks can make life easier for the AD patient.
  • Alternative medicine using herbal remedies, vitamins and supplements that may support or improve cognitive health and even delay AD may be considered. The use of omega-3 fatty acids, the Ginkgo herb, and vitamin E have been used by AD patients. However, clinical studies to date have produced little evidence to support the effectiveness of alternative medicine treatments.
  • Lifestyle remedies to promote good overall health may help to support cognitive health. These lifestyle remedies include regular exercise and daily activities, maintaining healthy nutrition, maintaining social interactions and activities.
