Thanks for the query
I understand your concern
I feel that your father will require a detailed neurological and memory assessment to pin point the exact cause of dementia. Medications that may help in Alzheimer’s disease are donepezil, memantine, rivastigmine. I require you to get evaluated by a local neurologist who will help you in these issues

Please get back in case you need additional information

I am extremely sorry to say you again that I have listed the approved drugs for treatment of Alzheimer's disease. To the best of my knowledge, the drug which you listed is not used for Alzheimer's disease. Please check in Montreal neurological institute. Neurologist there will guide you
