Rivamer is a medication for Alzheimer’s Disease which helps in improving the function of the nerve cells in the brain. It is a parsympathomimetic agent used for the treatment of mild to moderate Alzheimer related dementia.
Rivamer is prescribed mainly for people with mild to moderate dementia induced by Alzheimer’s disease. It helps the brain to improve its functions and abilities to think, communicate and remember. Rivamer may also be given for treatments other than those listed above.
Rivamer functions by preventing the breakdown of an organic neurotransmitter chemical called acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is crucial for the processes of memory, thinking, and reasoning. The level of this chemical is usually lower than normal in people with dementia
