Choline esterase inhibitors are not disease modifying. They may improve memory and delay nursing home admission in mild disease. The improvement in memory tends to be modest lasting for perhaps 6 to 12 months before declining to pre-medication levels. Not all patients respond to cholinesterase inhibitors.
