Why it’s used

Donepezil is used to treat dementia due to mild, moderate, and severe Alzheimer’s disease. This drug isn’t a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, but it may help slow down how quickly your symptoms progress. Symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease will get worse over time, even if you take medications such as donepezil.

How it works

Donepezil belongs to a class of drugs called acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. A class of drugs is a group of medications that work in a similar way. These drugs are often used to treat similar conditions.

People with Alzheimer’s disease have low amounts of a chemical in the brain called acetylcholine. Low levels of this chemical can cause dementia, or problems with mental function or doing daily tasks. Donepezil works by preventing the breakdown of acetylcholine. This can help decrease the symptoms of dementia.
