Experimental: Ambroxol high dose (1050 mg)
Participants randomized to the 1050 mg/day group will begin with a dose of 225mg (3 mg/kg/day), increasing bi-weekly by ~3mg/kg to a dose of 1050 mg/day (~l5 mg/kg/day).
Other Name: Mucosolvon
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Participants receive capsules visually identical to the experimental groups but without active ingredients.
- Changes in the Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale-cognitive subscale (ADAS-cog) [ Time Frame: baseline, week 26, and week 52 ]This 70-point test examines language, recall, word finding, comprehension, naming, drawing, praxis, orientation, and word recognition. Although designed for Alzheimer's disease where it is considered a gold standard, the ADAS-Cog has been used effectively in many clinical trials of PDD including large randomized trials. This scale has been recommended for the assessment of Parkinson's dementia in "Diagnostic Procedures for Parkinson's Disease Dementia: Recommendations from the Movement Disorder Society Task Force"
- Changes in the ADCS-Clinician's Global Impression of Change (CGIC) [ Time Frame: baseline, week 26, and week 52 ]This is a 7-point scale for rating patient function in cognition behavior and activities of daily living, and this test is standard in clinical trials in Alzheimer's disease and has been useful in trials with PDD.

- Changes in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) [ Time Frame: baseline and week 52 ]brain ventricle volume (cm3) and hippocampal atrophy (cm3)

- Changes in Plasma Ambroxol levels [ Time Frame: baseline, week 2, week 4, week 6, week 8, week 12, week 18, week 26, week 34, week 42, week 52 ]from blood sample
