Alzheimer's disease and dementia Memantine HCL Admenta

Admenta (Memantine HCL) is used to treat moderately severe to severe dementia and confusion when these symptoms are caused by Alzheimer's disease. This medicine is a type of NMDA receptor antagonist. After the patient takes it, it starts to work by acting on the receptors in the brain (called the NMDA receptors) which are important for the memory and learning function. Treatment with this drug can help to improve cognitive function in Alzheimer's patients, and may make it easier for them to perform daily tasks.

Dosage and Administration
Treatment with Admenta (Memantine HCL) tablets requires a prior consultation with a doctor, so that the correct dosage can be prescribed. Adults treating Alzheimer's disease may be told to start out with a dosage of 5mg, taken orally once per day. This may be adjusted by the prescribing doctor. The maintenance dose can vary, and patients will be prescribed a dosage regimen ranging from 5mg taken once per day to 10mg taken twice per day. However, the daily dose will never exceed 20mg per day.
