Are you or someone you know experiencing agitation associated with Alzheimer’s disease?

Ontario Shores Centre for Mental health Sciences

Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Services is conducting a new study to examine the safety and efficacy of nabilone for managing agitation in individuals with Alzheimer’s disease.

You may be eligible if you have a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and are experiencing any of these symptoms:
• Feelings of irritability
• Restlessness, fidgeting and/or pacing
• Difficulty cooperating with others
• Frustration or anger

Participants must have a study partner who is available to participate with them. All participants will receive psychosocial counselling and compensation for their time.
