Galantamine Drug Information

Medication Information: Galantamine is prescribed for people with dementia associated with Alzheimer's disease. It helps with thought-provoking symptoms, such as memory loss and confusion. Galantamine is not a cure, but it does slow the progression of symptoms in some people.

Galantamine raises the level of a chemical called acetylcholine, which binds to nerve cells in the brain, and is low in people with dementia. Signs and symptoms of dementia can be improved by increasing acetylcholine levels. Galantamine is prescribed by a specialist doctor. If you are a nurse, please read the Galantamine leaflet.
