Alzheimer’s Disease is a brain disease that slowly destroys the memory and the ability to think, learn, communicate and handle daily activities.
Memantine is used to treat moderate to severe confusion (dementia) related to Alzheimer’s disease. It does not cure Alzheimer’s disease, but it may improve memory, awareness, and the ability to perform daily functions. This works by blocking the action of a certain natural substance in the brain (glutamate) that is believed to be linked to symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.
Can the memantine tablets be crushed?
It would depend on what type of tablet you have. If they are the extended release tablets, then the tablets shouldn’t be crushed. It is intended to be taken whole. On the other hand, if the tablet you have are not extended release, then it wouldn’t be a problem if you crush it before taking it. If you are having a difficult time swallowing a tablet, you could consider taking a solution form of the medication if available in your area.
