using Aricept for MS cognitive problems

I have been taking aricept (10 mg) for over 10 years. I'm wasn't sure what good it was doing me until I quit recently (new doctor told me it was proven to be ineffective for MS). A week after I quit the Aricept I discovered it WAS doing something for me. No, not relieving all cognitive issues, but many of them. I am more impaired without the Aricept than I was on it, so I'm going back on it.
No, no bad side effects here. I take it at bedtime and don't have nausea, stinky farts, or dizziness. It seems to be doing something good for me.
