EXELON (rivastigmine) patch is used to treat dementia (memory loss) associated with mild, moderate, or severe Alzheimer's disease, or mild to moderate dementia associated with Parkinson's disease. EXELON will not cure these diseases and it will not stop these diseases from getting worse. However, EXELON can improve thinking ability in some patients with these diseases. In Alzheimer's disease, many chemical changes take place in the brain. One of the earliest and biggest changes is that there is a decrease in a chemical called acetylcholine (ACh). ACh helps the brain to work properly. Rivastigmine is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. It slows the breakdown of ACh, so it can build up and have a greater effect. However, as Alzheimer's disease gets worse, there will be less and less ACh, so rivastigmine may not work as well. This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription. Thanks and may you have a good understanding about this drug—EXELON Patch. You may want to share this book with your family and friends who may be in need of help and would want to use this medicine. Take care, and as always, be well!
