Parkinson's dementia is terrible. When my father broke his hip and then died in December 2013, we were relieved. He was exceptionally difficult to deal with. I was hoping that he would have been able to try Nuplazid, but approval did not come soon enough. I agree with your last 3 sentences.
I agree with you, but if you have the resources you will pay out of pocket for the alternative is exceptionally unpleasant. I know. I dealt with this for years with my father who was diagnosed in 1996 and passed away Dec 2013.
I believe our family paid over $5,000/month for my father's memory care facility. That was 2 years ago too so the price has probably escalated. If Nuplazid allows patients to stay in the house a little longer it is good.
Thanks for the note. Great to have a new tool to help Parkinson's patients with dementia. I was really hoping that the drug would be available for my father. His need brought me to Acadia in the first place.
My father passed away from complications from Parkinson's Disease (PD) in 2013. He had dementia resulting from his PD. Taking care of someone in this state is extremely difficult. Our family has financial means, but memory care facilities don't want to put up with a combative, delusional, paranoid patient. He was kicked out of 2 or 3 places. We tried Seroquel and other drugs, but his behavior did not change. This is a major unmet need.
Aegerion, Amag, Intra-Cellular, Novavax, Relypsa and TherapeuticsMD will drive value creation.
Unfortunately, I don't have a subscription.
I'm curious about the Piper Jaffray analyst. His comments seem at best irresponsible and at worst market manipulation.
So I guess the 2 hours of good news that we heard this morning on the conference call/presentation are meaningless. Plus don't forget the support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (up to 89 million). This is crazy.
I'm with you as well. Particularly screwy after many days of significant declines. Time to turn the corner, right? Apparently not.
I believe I congratulated you and said have fun spending your fictional money.
Yeah, my father missed the window. He had dementia from Parkinson's Disease. Very difficult for and his family. I would have liked a chance to test the drug on him.
This from someone with a id created August 12th, 2015. Have fun with your fictional $9.5 million.
