Rivamer 3 mg is an effective remedy for adult patients with mild to moderately severe Alzheimer’s dementia, a progressive mental health disorder that gradually affects memory, behaviour, and intellectual ability. It is available in the form of capsules for oral administration. Each capsule contains Rivastigmine, which belongs to a class of medications known as cholinesterase inhibitors. The active ingredient acts by blocking certain enzymes that break down acetylcholine. By blocking the action of these enzymes, Rivamer increases the levels of acetylcholine in the brain, thereby reducing the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia associated with Parkinson’s disease. In patients with Alzheimer’s dementia, certain nerve cells die in the brain resulting in low levels of neurotransmitters acetylcholine.
