Hello,
Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
Early onset Alzheimer disease is not very common. I frankly dont know many people with this diagnosis but yes have seen two of them. I know its very disabling.
Along with adrenaline, you should consider donepezil which is useful in the dosage of 5mg-10mg.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
