    Q. An 88 years old dementia patient got diarrhea and rhinorea. He was stable on 5 mg donpezil. This all has occurred after increase of dose from 5mg to 10mg. What is the next step?
    a. Ignore as the drug is donpezil
    b. This may not be a side effect of the donpezil and do nothing
    c. Reduce the dose to 5mg and review after 3 months
    d. Stop the drug and review after 6 months
    e. Watch and wait
