Alzheimer's disease or dementia is a neurological disorder that affects thinking, learning, communicating, and managing daily activities. Also known as Parkinson's disease, this condition is a central nervous system disorder that causes shaking, stiffness, and difficulty walking and making balance and coordination with the surrounding things.
Alzheimer’s dementia or dementia due to Parkinson’s disease is often caused due to the death of certain nerve cells or disconnection of these nerve cells from other body parts. This condition is caused by low levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, a substance that allows nerve cells to communicate and improve the transmission of nerve signals. Rivastigmine available in the Rivamer capsule raises a chemical called acetylcholine in the brain to improve memory, attention, and learning capacity. This substance can reduce the symptoms of dementia and treat the condition of impairment in thinking and memory.
