1. Buy Rivamer 3mg Online

Rivastigmine is used to treat dementia in people with Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.

Rivastigmine may also be prescribed for other conditions as determined by the doctor.

2. How To Rivamer 3mg Work?

Rivastigmine belongs to the class of drugs called cholinesterase inhibitors. It works by increasing the levels of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine, which is regulates the transmission of nerve signals. This improves the symptoms of dementia and cognitive processes of thinking, memory and learning.

3. What is Rivamer 3mg Capsule?

Rivamer 3Mg Capsule, is used to treat dementia in patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s. Being a cholinesterase inhibitor, it functions by increasing the amount of acetylcholine that may help to reduce the symptoms of dementia such as changes in personality and impairment in thinking.

If you are allergic to any of the ingredients of Rivamer 3Mg Capsule or to carbamate derivatives like meprobamate, do not use it. It is also not to be used if you use another form of it, or are taking acebutolol, atenolol, betaxolol, bisoprolol. If you have dementia that is not caused by either Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s, or if you have a scheduled surgery coming up, let your doctor know.

Rivamer 3Mg Capsule is taken by mouth with the morning and evening meals. It is important that you take it regularly so as to reap most benefit out of it. The dosage usually starts out low and is then increased after about two to four weeks.

Side effects of Rivamer 3Mg Capsule include weight loss, vomiting, weakness, dizziness, diarrhea, and increased sweating. If you encounter mood changes, bloody or black stools, fainting, decreased coordination, find a doctor immediately.

4. How To Take Rivamer 3mg Capsule?

You should take your Rivamer capsules 3mg swallowed whole with a glass of water, twice daily, with food, preferably at morning and evening meal times.  Your doctor may increase your dose depending on your response and your condition.  You should continue to take your Rivamer capsules 3mg for as long as recommended by your doctor as they help to slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease but they do not cure it.

5. Mechanism Action Of Rivamer 3mg?

Rivamer capsules 3mg contain rivastigmine, a cholinesterase inhibitor that is used to treat Alzheimer's Disease. 

The loss of cognitive function (attention, thinking, reasoning, learning and memory) that is associated with Alzheimer's Disease is caused by degeneration of brain cells, particularly those that produce the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter is a chemical that allows nerve cells to communicate).  Acetylcholine is continually released by brain cells in specific areas of the brain that control cognitive function and it is then degraded by the enzyme cholinesterase to prevent its build up in the synapses (gaps between neurones). 

A feature of the brain associated with the development of Alzheimer's disease is the appearance of two abnormal structures.  Plaques are deposits of protein fragments called beta-amyloids that build up between neurons (nerve cells) and are generated by the destruction of amyloidogenic beta-amyloid-precursor protein (APP), the fragments of which form the amyloid plaques. 

The other structure consists of tangles of twisted fibres of another protein called tau that build up inside dying nerve cells.  Plaques and tangles are thought to be responsible for damaging and killing nerve cells; followed by loss of connections between neurones in the brain. 

The tangles and bundles start in the inner temporal lobes and the cerebral cortex and then the spread to other regions of the brain. 

Rivastigmine in Rivamer capsules 3mg increases the level of acetylcholine in the brain by inhibiting the action of cholinesterase, which slows down the degradation of acetylcholine released by acetylcholine-producing neurones that are still functional and this increases levels of acetylcholine in the damaged areas of the brain.  It is also thought that inhibition of cholinesterase may slow the formation APP fragments and thereby of the amyloid plaques. 

Rivamer capsules 3mg help restore cognitive processes of thinking, learning and memory, and improve daily functioning in people living with Alzheimer's disease, by slowing down the progression of the disease; but they cannot prevent its progression or cure the disease.
