What is the difference between the Exelon patch and the Aricept pill? My husband's dr. prescribed the patch and the insurance company denied it. He has now prescribed the pill.

Exelon patch is causing less side effects than Exelon pill but has the same effect as Aricept pill. So you would not get much benefit except may be from easier administration.
