Exelon
Exelon (Rivastigmine) is an oral medication used to treat patients with Alzheimer or Parkinson disease.
Drug Uses

This medicine is a cholinesterase inhibitor used to treat loss of memory and thinking problems due to Alzheimer or Parkinson disease. It may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor.

How to use

Exelon usually is taken twice daily with meals. Due to gastrointestinal side effects that can be seen early in therapy, exelon therapy is generally started at a low dose, often 1.5 mg twice daily, and gradually increased not more than once every 2 weeks. The goal usually is 6 mg twice daily. If a patient develops severe gastrointestinal side effects such as upset stomach and vomiting, he or she may need to stop taking exelon for a few doses and then start taking it again at the same dose or a lower dose. Drugs with anticholinergic effects and which cross into the brain, such as atropine, benztropine (Cogentin), and trihexyphenidyl (Artane) oppose the effects of exelon and should be avoided during therapy with exelon. Unlike donepezil (Aricept), exelon does not cause the blood levels of other medications to rise and increase their risk for side effects.

Drug Class and Mechanism

Exelon is an oral medication used to treat patients with Alzheimer's disease. Exelon is in a class of drugs called cholinesterase inhibitors that also includes tacrine (Cognex), donezepil (Aricept), and galantamine (Reminyl). Cholinesterase inhibitors inhibit (block) the action of acetylcholinesterase, the enzyme responsible for the destruction of acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is one of several neurotransmitters in the brain, chemicals that nerve cells use to communicate with one another. Reduced levels of acetylcholine in the brain are believed to be responsible for some of the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease. By blocking the enzyme that destroys acetylcholine, exelon increases the concentration of acetylcholine in the brain, and this increase is believed to be responsible for the improvement in thinking seen with exelon.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Alex EDWARDS:
Don't have ED but asked the DR for a sample and a scrip. Bought on-line from India and think the quality is the same as USA sample. 100mg cut in half costs less than $3 per dose. This stuff is amazing! I have had problems lasting more than 5 minutes, now I can control ejaculation for over an hour until I sense she's ready to finish. Like I said...amazing. Most times I get flushed face within 15 minutes of taking it and a bit of a stuffy nose. Ready to rock in an hour. When done, wait a few and am ready to go again. Did I mention that this stuff is amazing?

At Last!! I take Viagra for about 3 years now. It has been proven to be highly effective. At last, after almost 5 years, I can act like a "normal" man. That is: it seems like I am again 20 years of age (I am 47). Take it, it helps.comes around so I'm not worried. Thanks a lot for this amazing product.
