Brief Answer: All drugs are safe Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing to us. All three drugs can be safely used. Some common side effects of these drugs(Aricept,Dicorate) are malaise, appetite loss, and GI symptoms of nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, indigestion, unusual wight loss.This might be one of the reasons why she has become frail. Has she lost weight in the past 6months? If yes how much has she lost? Any idea as to what her weight was before that? Was your mother diagnosed Alzheimer's? If no, what was the diagnosis? Feel free to share the information so that I can help you better. Thanks,
