Memantine 10 Mg

What is memantine?

Memantine is a prescription drug. It comes in three forms: immediate-release tablet, oral solution, and extended-release capsule.

Memantine oral tablet is available as the brand-name drug Namenda. 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.

Memantine may be used as part of a combination therapy. That means you need to take it with other drugs to treat dementia associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

How it works

Memantine belongs to a class of drugs called NMDA receptor antagonists. A class of drugs is a group of medications that work in a similar way. These drugs are often used to treat similar conditions.

The cause of Alzheimer’s disease isn’t fully understood. People with the disease may be overexposed to the chemical glutamate. This is thought to cause damage to the brain cells in people with Alzheimer’s disease.

Memantine works by blocking the receptors in the brain that glutamate would normally bind to. This decreases the harmful effect of glutamate in the brain and may help improve your symptoms of dementia.
