Hi, my mom has mild dementia and has moved in with my husband and myself. I have MS and take Acetyl L-carnitine to help with memory function and energy. My mom"s daily meds are Donepezil 10mg 1 day and a Simvatatin 80mg 1 a day. would it be safe to give her 500 mg of the Acetyl L-Carnitine ?

Hello.

This is a question best asked of you mother's doctor and/or pharmacist. The pharmacist would know if there are any interactions between these medications.
