What is donepezil?

Donepezil is a prescription drug. It comes in two oral tablet forms: oral tablet and oral disintegrating tablet (ODT).

Donepezil oral tablet is available as the brand-name drug Aricept. It’s also available as a generic drug. Generic drugs usually cost less than the brand-name version. In some cases, they may not be available in every strength or form as the brand-name drug.

This drug may be used as part of a combination therapy. That means you need to take it with other drugs.
