Drugs that help PREVENT Alzheimer's
There's lots of interest in drugs that might help PREVENT Alzheimer's...estrogen...NSAIDs...prednisone...selegiline plus vitamin E...and even nicotine. Delaying the onset or progression of Alzheimer's would have enormous benefits.
Estrogen seems to reduce the risk of Alzheimer's...and may even improve cognitive function in women who already have it.
Recent studies in JAMA and other journals suggest about a 50% lower risk of Alzheimer's in older women who have taken estrogen.
