Namenda Combination Treatment

Combination Therapy and Namenda – Namenda.com
Since the person you are caring for is already taking a prescribed Alzheimer's medicine, you have already done a great deal toward helping to treat this difficult illness. However, because Alzheimer's is a progressive disease, you may be wondering what more you can do to treat its symptoms. Fortunately, there is an option.

Combination therapy – adding Namenda® (memantine HCl)* to another Alzheimer's medication, Aricept® (donepezil) – may do more to treat the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease.1

Combining medications to increase benefits is not a new concept in healthcare. To treat conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure, doctors often combine medications so patients derive benefits from drugs that target different aspects of the disease.
