NAMENDA: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Alzheimer’s Disease “My Dad took this medication and on the 7mg and 14mg did quite well. At first I thought it was a miracle drug. Being time released was wonderful but it was so dang expensive. Almost $220.00 for a two week supply. We got the generic from the VA which is not time released and it was awful. We took him off it and the hallucinations continue but at least they are friendly people.”

For Alzheimer’s Disease “My mom has been on this medication for one year and her condition (Dementia) is getting worst. She’s hallucinating, aggressive, and extremely confused. It’s seems as if this medication is making things worst and speeding up the progress of the dementia. This drug should not be on the market. I will bring her to her Psychologist soon and I will be asking for this drug to be taken off her daily medication intake. Please say no to this drug.”

For Alzheimer’s Disease “My mother has taken Namenda twice now. The first time she was so confuse after a week I stopped giving it to her. She has gotten worse over the years and for some reason her doctor had given me a new prescription for the same medicine. I tried it for two days and saw my mother become extremely confused so I stop giving it to her. I don’t know why he insisted on Namenda after I told him it didn’t work the first time.”

For Alzheimer’s Disease “My mother has been taking it for one month and her dementia – which was mild – has gotten worse. She is confused and thinks that my brother lives with her. She was taking samples as she cannot afford the medicine”

For Alzheimer’s Disease “I have taken it for about 4-5 yes. I feel able to cope pretty well considering. I live by myself and manage to do most things. I still have memory issues, but so do most people. I have been fortunate not to have had adverse effects of any consequence.”
