NMDA Agonists

Helps patients remember, problem solve, carry out everyday duties, communicate

This drug class prevents glutamate (a molecule in the brain that sends messages between brain cells) from interacting with NMDA receptors (gateways on brain cells that sense the presence of glutamate and allow molecules to pass through). This allows brain cells to communicate normally, preserving a patient's ability to synthesize new information and recall old information.

Memantine is safe for moderate to severe stages of Alzheimer's.
