A 19-year-old male asked:

Do cases of alzheimer's disease get better with medications and is there a relation between having alzheimer's and hypothyrodism ?

Modest meds: Although we have several memory enhancing drugs, at best these slow deterioration, and may control some behavioral complications. The disease does not improve but may stabilize for a time. Hypothyroidism may cause cognitive problems but has really no relationship to alzheimer's.
Dr. Maureen Nash
Geriatric Psychiatry 24 years experience
2 questions: Some of the symptoms may get better with medications but not all of them. Severe hypothyroidism can look similar to dementia including alzheimer's.
