Suggest treatment for Alzheimer s disease

My brother is in a home in Arkansas and has Alzhiemers diagnosed by a doctor at the Verteran s Adm. in Little Rock. with the disease. Now in the Rehab, ---he was prescribed Quetiapine Funarrate by the Rebab doctor. IIs this an acceptable prescription for a man with Alzhiemer s Disease. (Excuse spelling may be wrong.) It is given as being for bipolar. He has never been diagnosed as such. Is there a fee for this consultation? If so I need to know before continuing. Willl pass on your service due to needing to pay.

if it's an Alzhimers disease then treatment is tab Donrpezil and memantine depending upon stage of disease. in some cases of Alzhimers disease we have to prescribe antipsychotics like quetiapine but it is never first line of drug.
please provide detail history including age and chronology of event's so that I can make a diagnosis and prescribe proper treatment.
