One subtype of this syndrome, amnestic MCI, occurs preferentially but not exclusively in prodromal AD and is characterized by defined deficits of episodic memory. Design, setting and participants: For a 2-year, double-blinded, placebo-controlled study MCI patients, presenting with an amnestic syndrome but not necessarily based on presumed prodromal AD were randomized. Intervention: Patients received (a) a combination of 16 mg galantamine plus 20 mg memantine, or (b) 16 mg galantamine alone or (c) placebo.

You know yuckies, maybe your doc should up your dosages of galantamine and memantine. Maybe that would help your lack of reading comprehension issues...

More Americans have died this year from the coronavirus than died in World War I.  And more than double the number of Americans who died in the Vietnam War. 190,000. There's a word for that massive loss of life: unacceptable. The majority of Republicans, 63% say it's ok they died. Only 10% of Democrats. Republicans, what has happened to your humanity? You were enraged when 3,000 Americans died on 9/11. When did you lose your compassion for your fellow Americans?

And the Spanish Flu of 1918 killed almost 700,000 Americans and over 50 million world wide. Your comparisons mean nothing. Give it a break.

casones

clown compares flu with no technology to pandemic 100 years later. give it a break. dumb as a rock

Veritas

What is it with you leftist loons and reading comprehension? I would try to dumb it down for you, but I don’t think I could make it any simpler. Dah.....

She is as dumb as Ivanka saying "I love you too, Daddy"

Ignorance is bliss. Stupidity is glorious.

Despite what you may have heard, saying it over and over again does not make it believable.

Actually, just over 9,000 Americans died from COVID, according to the CDC. The rest, a majority sadly old and infirm, died from other ailments that may or may not have been exacerbated by COVID. By the same token, many elderly folks with a litany of ailments will likely succumb to the common cold this winter. A tragedy but a commonplace occurrence nonetheless. Your numbers are silly, Dweeb. Getting anyone to believe Democrats - the party that seems to take sheer delight in funding the murder of untold numbers of unborn humans - somehow values life above their Republican counterparts is absolutely ridiculous. By the way, it was an aggressive act by other human beings that resulted in the extermination of 3,000 Americans on 9/11. The death toll is actually much higher factoring in other issues years after the fact. Honestly, Dweeb, you've posted this nonsense repeatedly, word-for-word - probably copied from some bookmarked source - and its credibility isn't growing with each appearance. Nor do you have any credibility at this point. I don't know your life experience or motivations, etc. I don't believe you are truly the cartoon character you paint yourself to be here for whatever reason. Do better because you are likely much better than copy and paste - probably much more reasonable in person, too. Put aside the politics and really examine the COVID issue - really examine the numbers. Look at the true mortality rate. Seriously investigate the usage of masks and apply some common sense. Honestly. For the sake of myself and my family, I absolutely took COVID and the information they fed us at the start of this at face value. I took precautions. Then I observed and investigated. Despite what you think, I don't listen to talk radio and I don't watch FOX News. Dweeb, I don't even have cable. I am, in fact, not registered to vote as a Democrat or Republican. I truly am a registered Independent. Unlike you, I rarely mention Trump in my posts. You and your progressive friends mention Trump routinely while your opposition here hardly ever does. Why is that?

casones

Because your king, trump wants to sleep with his daughter, bff with putin, cheat when melania is giving birth, got caught frauding students of trump university, filed bankruptcy 5 times, paid fine for trump trust violations, lied about his worth, called veterans suckers, sexually assaulted over 30 woman, idolized epstein, AND LIKE BUSH, YOU IDIOT, BUSH KNEW OF THE TERRORIST 911 ATTACKS IN ADVANCE JUST LIKE TRUMP KNEW OF THE VIRUS BEFOREHAND. hEY, STUPID, NEITHER ONE READ THEIR SECURITY BRIEFINGS.

The Independent Voter

Cajones raving like a lunatic. Keep it up, though, because fence-sitters get a good look at the future of America in the hands of Dems. Looney leftists out of control, cities burning, lockdowns and mandates on a whim if it suits their political needs, endless investigations if a pointless nature against their personal and political enemies. The vile rhetoric offered by weirdos like cajones and mrknownothing tell us, though, that they know Jumbled Joe is in trouble. These representatives of the Democratic Party always lose their minds when the Orange Devil they fear the most rises up in obvious victory. This will be a fun couple of months.

Lamonster

@TIV But without him we wouldn't know what they're thinking at The Atlantic.

Bodysnatcher

I have never seen such hate in my life. Democrats have become rabid dogs foaming at the mouth with their hate for one man and his supporters. Democrats are BaTsHiT crazy about everything Trump. I disliked and even loathed, at times, Obama, but not to the extremes Democrats have shown. I guess this is what happens when you disregard the sanctity of life and justice for all.

@Dweeb: Seriously dude, do you have nothing better to do than sit and refresh your browser all day long waiting for the current numbers so you can copy/paste your DNC talking point?

Get a life and quit wasting bandwidth...
