Admenta 10 mg is available in the form of a tablet to treat moderate to severe dementia caused by Alzheimer’s disease. It may be used as a part of combination therapy. It helps reduce dementia symptoms, but it does not cure or slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Memantine is categorized under the drug class NMDA receptor antagonists, which is known to block the receptors in the brain that glutamate would normally bind to. This causes a significant reduction in the harmful effect of glutamate in the brain and may help improve the symptoms of dementia. If you are allergic to Memantine, you should not take any memantine formulation, including Admenta 10 mg. Speak to your doctor if you have a history of epileptic seizures or recently experienced a heart attack.
Always take Admenta 10 mg exactly as your doctor has told you. Discuss with your doctor if you are not sure about the correct dosage of the drug. In general, take Admenta once daily. To get the most benefit from your drug, take it exactly as your doctor has told you. Swallow the pill with water. Your doctor may be asked to take the tablet before or after consuming food. Continue to take this medicine without skipping a dose. If you miss a dose of your Memantine formulation, wait and take your next dose at the usual time. Avoid taking two doses at the same time to compensate for the missed dose. You may ask your doctor if you have further questions related to the usage of the drug.
If you are suffering from a kidney disorder, your doctor will prescribe a dose that suits your condition. In this case, your doctor will monitor your kidney function at specified intervals.
Do not take Admenta 10 mg if you are hypersensitive to Memantine or any other medicine ingredients. Discuss with your doctor if you have a history of epileptic seizures, have recently experienced a myocardial infarction, or suffer from congestive heart failure or uncontrolled high blood pressure. In these conditions, the treatment should be carefully supervised, and your doctor regularly assesses the clinical benefit of Memantine hydrochloride. The doctor will closely monitor those who suffer from renal impairment, and if necessary, dose adjustments should be made accordingly.
