My husband was given this medication by his doctor to try to improve his memory. He was put on 5mg I a day. This seemed to work very well. It helped his memory and also made him seem more present. Just increased to 2 a day and seems to be making him loose temper often. Might put him back to 1 a day. Any one else have this problem?
