http://www.rxwiki.com/articles/news_s... Ask a pharmacist your questions now! http://www.rxwiki.com/askrx/questions Alzheimer's disease is a brain disorder that results in memory loss and not being able to perform normal daily tasks. Although there is no cure for Alzheimer's disease, there are medications available that will help with the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and will help slow down the progression. Some of these medications include Aricept and Namenda. In moderate to severe Alzheimer's, Aricept and Namenda are often used together. In fact, many experts and professional organizations recommend the use of Aricept (or other medications in the same drug class) and Namenda together in moderate to severe Alzheimer's. Be sure to talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you are unsure about the safety or effectiveness of these medications.

Namenda
 
11:01
Once it appears, Alzheimer’s Disease steadily and progressively interferes with memory, cognitive function and personality. No currently available therapy significantly alters the continuous downward spiral of the disease. Although marketed to favorably improve the course, Namenda seems relatively ineffective. Even when combined with Aricept, another commonly prescribed drug, Namenda regularly fails to alter the prognosis. Side effects and cost remain concerns.

Memantine - Could This Pharmaceutical Drug Be Too Risky?
 
07:07
READ MORE HERE: https://goo.gl/uk9AoJ The main memantine benefits are related to improving memory formation and learning (among healthy individuals) and reducing memory decline among those with Alzheimer’s disease and other memory related ailments. A 2003 study in the New England Journal of Medicine concluded that memantine successfully reduced deterioration of moderate and severe Alzheimer’s disease. Given this is one of the most prestigious journals in the world, it is meaningful that they concluded “other treatments are not available”. This was a relatively large study with 252 patients over 28 weeks. The memantine benefits come from the antiglutamatergic treatment specifically, which blocks NMDA receptors. This discovery wasn’t made until recently, however. The evidence in favor of using memantine for reducing cognitive decline is sufficient, though using the drug for cognitive enhancement purposes is another story. While there is some evidence on similar drugs (like donepezil), they don’t correlate directly with memantine. Other benefits of memantine include: -Dementia -Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) -Generalized anxiety disorder -Addiction therapy -ADHD All of these benefits have received far less academic attention than the Alzheimer’s disease and senile dementia research. While these promising studies have prompted community members and nootropics enthusiasts to try the drug themselves, the benefits aren’t set in stone. Memantine and ADHD One of the memantine benefits is for ADHD patients. There are over 11% of U.S. children who are diagnosed with ADHD and given amphetamine based drugs. Millions of children (and adults) are taking these drugs and while life-saving at times, there are plenty who seek alternatives to Adderall. When a possible treatment for ADHD pops up as a nootropic, it’s worth looking into. According to much of the anecdotal and scientific reports, this might be a useful alternative. A 2013 study concluded that memantine demonstrated beneficial effects in childhood disorders. They also aptly concluded that there was too little evidence to advocate for regular use of the drug, but they did note that off-label use was the only way to see benefits until further studies were completed. The off-label use seems to be going well for many, however. In one anecdotal report, a Redditor noted: “I was diagnosed with ADHD at a young age and I’ve been on stimulants for it for most of my life – mostly Concerta (extended-release methylphenidate). The stimulants helped me focus, but I still procrastinated like crazy and the side effects made me feel like a zombie. A few years ago I decided to stop taking stimulants and search for a more sustainable solution. I think I’ve finally found that solution in Memantine… …I can focus better, it’s easier to motivate myself to get things done, and I’m procrastinating much less than I used to. I’ve been much more productive at my job and around the house. Best of all, I’ve had absolutely no side effects other than a bit of dissociation and brain fog for the first week after increasing my dosage to 10mg (and even that could probably have been avoided if I had titrated more slowly.)…” – blindcolumn

Namzaric
 
13:58
While televised ads for Namzaric suggest it helps individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, the company’s website clearly states: “There is no evidence that NAMZARIC prevents or slows the underlying disease process…” This expensive combination of donepezil or Aricept together with a long acting form of memantine fails to provide meaningful relief for the overwhelming majority of individuals treated. Additionally the frail elderly population appears prone to significant side effects from this relatively useless drug.

In this video, Dr. Gayatri Devi, board-certified neurologist and author of The Spectrum of Hope: An Optimistic and New Approach to Alzheimer’s Disease, discusses the medications used to treat Alzheimer’s. There are two major classes of medication—the first promotes brain cell health and includes the medication Namenda…the second class increases levels of certain chemicals within the brain, and includes Aricep, Rivastigmine, Galantamine and the Exelon patch. Dr. Devi notes that this latter class is more likely to cause side effects, including nightmares, upset stomach, loose bowels, runny nose, metallic taste in the mouth and leg cramps. To reduce side effects, patients should start with the smallest doses possible.

I am very experienced at self prescribing with Homeopathy .I have been experimenting with taking Homeopathic Aricept for my clinical symptoms of Dementia which have over 20 years been dismissed as 'normal forgetfulness' by more than four doctors and has recently dramatically worsened. I now take Homeopathic Aricept every day. Marked improvement. But sadly, it is not a cure. It is just helping me to remember to take essential medication, clean my teeth and not have thoughts of committing suicide because its raining! I kid U not!! I hope Homeopathic doctors will seriously reflect on my use of Homeopathic Aricept and cause them to be braver and more willing to experiment with the patients consent.

ALZHEIMER'S DRUGS ARICEPT
 
02:22
http://www.alzheimer-herbs.com ALZHEIMER'S ALTERNATIVE TREATMENT AND PREVENTION http://www.alzheimer-herbs.com Although current medications cannot cure Alzheimer's or stop it from progressing, they may help lessen symptoms, such as memory loss and confusion, for a limited time. Types of drugs.The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved two types of medications — cholinesterase inhibitors (Aricept, Exelon, Razadyne, Cognex) and memantine (Namenda) — to treat the cognitive symptoms (memory loss, confusion, and problems with thinking and reasoning) of Alzheimer's disease. As Alzheimer's progresses, brain cells die and connections among cells are lost, causing cognitive symptoms to worsen. While current medications cannot stop the damage Alzheimer's causes to brain cells, they may help lessen or stabilize symptoms for a limited time by affecting certain chemicals involved in carrying messages among the brain's nerve cells. Doctors sometimes prescribe both types of medications together. Some doctors also prescribe high doses of vitamin E for cognitive changes of Alzheimer's disease. All of the prescription medications currently approved to treat Alzheimer's symptoms in early to moderate stages are from a class of drugs called cholinesterase inhibitors. Cholinesterase inhibitors are prescribed to treat symptoms related to memory, thinking, language, judgment and other thought processes. Cholinesterase inhibitors: Prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine (a-SEA-til-KOH-lean), a chemical messenger important for learning and memory. This supports communication among nerve cells by keeping acetylcholine levels high. Delay worsening of symptoms for 6 to 12 months, on average, for about half the people who take them. Are generally well tolerated. Three cholinesterase inhibitors are commonly prescribed: Donepezil (Aricept) is approved to treat all stages of Alzheimer's. Rivastigmine (Exelon) is approved to treat mild to moderate Alzheimer's. Galantamine (Razadyne) is approved to treat mild to moderate Alzheimer's. A second type of medication, memantine (Namenda) is approved by the FDA for treatment of moderate to severe Alzheimer's. Memantine is prescribed to improve memory, attention, reason, language and the ability to perform simple tasks. It can be used alone or with other Alzheimer's disease treatments. There is some evidence that individuals with moderate to severe Alzheimer's who are taking a cholinesterase inhibitor might benefit by also taking memantine. Donepezil (Aricept) is the only cholinesterase inhibitor approved to treat all stages of Alzheimer's disease, including moderate to severe. Memantine: Regulates the activity of glutamate, a different messenger chemical involved in learning and memory. Delays worsening of symptoms for some people temporarily. Many experts consider its benefits similar to those of cholinesterase inhibitors.

A List of Common Dementia Medications
 
06:48
A List of Common Dementia Medications. Introduction:. Dementia is a term that describes a wide range of symptoms associated with a decline in memory or other thinking skills. This decline is severe enough to make you less able to perform everyday activities. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia. Other common types include Lewy body dementia, Parkinson's dementia, and vascular dementia. There is no known cure for any type of dementia, and medications can’t prevent the condition or reverse the brain damage it causes. However, various drugs can provide some symptom relief. Read on to learn what these drugs may do to ease dementia symptoms for you or your loved one. Types of dementia medications:. Several prescription medications are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat symptoms of dementia caused by AD. These drugs can provide short-term relief of cognitive (thought-related) dementia symptoms, and some can also help slow the progression of AD-related dementia. While these drugs are approved to treat symptoms of AD, they’re not approved to treat symptoms of other types of dementia. However, researchers are exploring off-label uses of these medications for people with non-AD dementias. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, research suggests that some AD medications may benefit people with vascular dementias and Parkinson's dementia. Some of the most commonly prescribed medications used to treat symptoms of AD are cholinesterase inhibitors and memantine. Cholinesterase inhibitors:. Cholinesterase inhibitors work by increasing a chemical in your brain called acetylcholine that aids in memory and judgment. Increasing the amount of acetylcholine in your brain may delay dementia-related symptoms. It may also prevent them from worsening. The more common side effects of cholinesterase inhibitors include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and dizziness. Examples of commonly prescribed cholinesterase inhibitors are:. Donepezil (Aricept):. Donepezil is approved to delay or slow the symptoms of mild, moderate, and severe AD. It may be used off-label to help reduce behavioral symptoms in some people with thought problems following a stroke, Lewy body dementia, and vascular dementia. Donepezil comes as a tablet and a disintegrating tablet. Galantamine (Razadyne):. Galantamine is approved to prevent or slow the symptoms of mild to moderate AD. It may be used off-label to help provide the same benefit for people with vascular dementia or Lewy body dementia. Galantamine comes as a tablet, extended-release capsule, and an oral solution. Rivastigmine (Exelon):. Rivastigmine (Exelon) is approved to prevent or slow the symptoms of mild to moderate AD or mild to moderate Parkinson's dementia. It comes as a capsule or patch. Memantine:. Memantine is used mainly to delay increasing cognitive and behavioral symptoms from moderate to severe AD. This effect may allow people with AD to function more normally for a longer time. Memantine may be used off-label to provide the same benefit for people with vascular dementia. Memantine is not a cholinesterase inhibitor, but it also acts on chemicals in the brain. What’s more, memantine is often prescribed in combination with a cholinesterase inhibitor. An example of this combination is Namzaric, a medication that combines extended-release memantine with donepezil. Memantine comes as a tablet, an extended-release capsule, and an oral solution. Its more common side effects include:. *headache. *high blood pressure. *diarrhea. *constipation. *dizziness. *confusion. *cough. *infection with the flu. Effectiveness:. How effective a dementia drug is varies by drug. For all of these drugs, however, the effectiveness tends to reduce over time. Talk with your doctor:. While there is no cure for dementia, several prescription medications can help slow the progression of the cognitive effects and other symptoms that dementia can cause. If you or a loved one has dementia, talk to your doctor about all of your treatment options. Be sure to ask any questions you have, such as:. *What type of dementia is it?. *Which medications will you prescribe?. *What results should I expect from this medication?. *What other treatments are available?. *How long should I expect this medication to help?.

Doctors sometimes prescribe both types of medications together. Some doctors also prescribe high doses of vitamin E for cognitive changes of Alzheimer's disease. All of the prescription medications currently approved to treat Alzheimer's symptoms in early to moderate stages are from a class of drugs called cholinesterase inhibitors. Cholinesterase inhibitors are prescribed to treat symptoms related to memory, thinking, language, judgment and other thought processes. Cholinesterase inhibitors: Prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine (a-SEA-til-KOH-lean), a chemical messenger important for learning and memory. This supports communication among nerve cells by keeping acetylcholine levels high. Delay worsening of symptoms for 6 to 12 months, on average, for about half the people who take them. Are generally well tolerated. Three cholinesterase inhibitors are commonly prescribed: Donepezil (Aricept) is approved to treat all stages of Alzheimer's. Rivastigmine (Exelon) is approved to treat mild to moderate Alzheimer's. Galantamine (Razadyne) is approved to treat mild to moderate Alzheimer's. A second type of medication, memantine (Namenda) is approved by the FDA for treatment of moderate to severe Alzheimer's. Memantine is prescribed to improve memory, attention, reason, language and the ability to perform simple tasks. It can be used alone or with other Alzheimer's disease treatments. There is some evidence that individuals with moderate to severe Alzheimer's who are taking a cholinesterase inhibitor might benefit by also taking memantine. Donepezil (Aricept) is the only cholinesterase inhibitor approved to treat all stages of Alzheimer's disease, including moderate to severe. Memantine: Regulates the activity of glutamate, a different messenger chemical involved in learning and memory. Delays worsening of symptoms for some people temporarily. Many experts consider its benefits similar to those of cholinesterase inhibitors.

Namenda Side Effects with 3 Alternative Treatments!
 
08:23
Click on the link below for a free video guide to dietary supplements and alternative medicine! http://utahtexans.com/ In this video I want to share some of the most common side effects of Namenda and share a few other additional options when it comes to alternative medicine treatment. Dementia and Alzhiemers are fairly horrible medical conditions. Dementia is a broad term that affects anything to do with thinking or memory skills. Alzheimer’s causes 50-70% of all dementia cases and includes things such as impaired thinking, speech and confusion. Alzheimer's is not reversible while dementia can be reversed and perhaps something like a drug is causing it. Namenda is a drug for dementia and moderate to severe Alzheimer's. The FDA approved the drug based on 2 studies. 1 involved 656 people with moderate to severe Alzheimer's aged 50- 93. Results showed that patients taking the drug experienced significant improvement compared to a placebo. The study used the opinions of caregivers and an instrument to measure cognition. Hopefully the caregivers were not biased right. However, a study published in CNN has shown it to be not effective with mild Alzheimer's and three other studies have shown this. This here is a red flag because if the drug really worked why would it not work in mild cases? Let's talk about some of the dangers and side effects with the drug. One of the most dangerous side effects would be hallucinations, hearing voices and a feeling like you can't breath which is shortness of breath. It could cause someone to be more angry and increase aggression. There could be swelling in the hands, feet, easy bruising or bleeding and joint pains. Other side effects could include diarrhea, stomach pains, vomiting and nausea. Of course one of the biggest side effects would be damage to your bank account. 30 capsules is nearly $400 according to drugs.com. Plus you get free radicals as the drug breaks down in the body. Other treatment ideas apart from this drug or any prescription drug could be a positive attitude. Sounds crazy but having good relationships, pets, spirituality all can help. Two studies from Yale University found a strong link between negative feelings about aging and an increased risk of developing Alzheimer's. A few things that make me feel great is giving back mostly through my time and also music almost always makes me feel great especially if I play it. Another idea is to reduce eating too much animal products. A 2002 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine has shown that that people who have high homo sis teen levels have twice the usual risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. Homocysteine levels tend to be higher in people whose diets are high in animal products. Plus moving around and exercising can lower the risk of developing Alzheimer's by up to 50 percent.  A Japanese study found that among 265 people with both normal mental function and mild cognitive decline, after one year of moderate exercise, 70 percent of them showed significant improvement in memory function. There are many other ideas such as supplements and herbs that can help. I actually created a huge video all about free ideas and some paid to improve memory. There are free websites I share, techniques, herbs that can really help, where to get these herbs, supplements and it really can help people. http://utahtexans.com/

ALZHEIMER'S DRUGS AND THEIR SIDE EFFECTS

Types of drugs.The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved two types of medications — cholinesterase inhibitors (Aricept, Exelon, Razadyne, Cognex) and memantine (Namenda) — to treat the cognitive symptoms (memory loss, confusion, and problems with thinking and reasoning) of Alzheimer's disease.

Drug Treatment for Alzheimer's Disease is Lacking

Drugs developed to treat Alzheimer's disease produce only fleeting memory improvements and do not slow the overall course of the disease. Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors such as Aricept, Razadyne, and Exelon and NMDA receptor inhibitors such as Namenda have very limited value. There is a new experimental drug called J147 that at least in mice enhances memory in both normal and ALzheimer's mice and also oprotects the brain from loss of synaptic connections. It is many years from reaching the market, and that is if it reaches it at all. There are other approaches that could be used clinically today that are underappreciated. New research shows that Alzheimer's disease is akin to an electrical brown out. Neurons simply cannot use glucose to make enough energy and they gradually die. It is possible to provide an alternate form of energy using saturated fats that are metabolized to ketone bodies. These ketone bodies provide an alternate source of ATP production. This along with niacinamide, choline, B12, and curcumin may help delay the progression or even improve the status of Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease (AD) is like an electrical "brown out" that develops as energy production of the hippocampal region of the brain begins to fail and atrophies. Nutritional programs make it possible to resuscitate some mitochondrial energy production and either stabilize or improve symptoms. Drugs are not a good solution because they provide minimal help and they have worrisome of side effects. Lifestyle strategies such as mental and physical exercise can delay or prevent the onset of AD and should always be part of an AD treatment program. It is also important to know that there are many prescription medications that are "anti-cholinergic" that are discussed in the videos below that can aggravate symptoms and should be avoided. Lastly, Dr. Saputo provides new cutting edge research that includes how light therapies can be used to reverse some symptoms of AD. For those of you interested in incorporating the most recent scientific breakthroughs into your treatment program, Dr. Saputo suggests you take our Alzheimer’s Disease Health Assessment. It is free and only takes about 2 minutes to complete. Based on how you fill out the assessment, certain audio and video files will be suggested for your review to help you learn what is possible deal with your particular symptoms.
