Combination (Cholinesterase Inhibitors & NMDA Agonists)

Temporarily relieves the behavioral effects of weakening brain connections.

Drug simultaneously acts through mechanisms of memantine and donepezil. Memantine prevents glutamate (a molecule in the brain that sends messages between brain cells) from interacting with NMDA receptors in the brain, which has been found to alleviate side effects of Alzheimer's. Donepezil inhibits clearance of acetylcholine (a molecule that sends signals from one brain cell to another), which helps to preserve brain connections and normal activity.

Namzaric is for moderate to severe stages of Alzheimer's.
