In brief: Dizziness
The main side-effect (3%) compared to placebo in fda trials was dizziness.
However a small percentage of demented patients may have varying symptoms including aggressiveness, apathy, depression. Behavioral changes happen within the first few weeks as a rule but are reversible with discontinuation.
