    Drug treatments for Alzheimer's disease are symptomatic. In other words, they help people deal with their symptoms. They may experience a mild improvement when they start treatment, but their decline over time will be the same as if they had no treatment. Researchers at UCLA and around the world are working hard to find drugs that can slow or arrest the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
