Why is Namenda prescribed?
Memantine (Namenda) is prescribed for the treatment of loss of memory, problem-solving and other language and thinking skills that may lead to Alzheimer’s disease.
What does it do?
Memantine, an N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) antagonist, primarily works by blocking the excitatory neurotransmitter such as glutamate, an amino acid responsible for sending signals in the cells which an excess excitation can lead to cell death; thus, reducing the action helps in the improvement of performance, ability and awareness of the body.
How should I take it?
Namenda and its generic equivalents are available 5mg and 10mg tablets. It is intended for oral administration as a whole, not to be crushed or chewed, and should be taken with or without food as directed by the doctor.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is strictly advised that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
Taking the dose properly at the scheduled time is needed to attain the desired effect of the drug. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and catch the next dose at the regular time. Do not take two doses just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before using Namenda?
Before taking Memantine, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any allergies to food or to the drug itself as it may contain several inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or problems.
Inform your doctor about your past and current medical history especially if you have or have had kidney disease, gallbladder disease, severe urinary tract infection, epilepsy, seizures and liver problems.
Avoid drinking alcohol as this may cause dizziness and drowsiness and can add to the effects of Memantine.
Consult your doctor regarding all the other medications you use before getting a surgery.
