In brief: Stop Aricept (donepezil)
If adverse events are occurring, stop the drug, but realize that Aricept (donepezil) has a long duration in the body and several days may pass until it is out of the system. Also, there maybe a sharp deterioration in memory if the drug is abruptly stopped.
Need to work closely with your neurologist or even a hospital.
