You may be required to submit further information and documents required by the pharmaceutical company which can be securely uploaded online.
Your application is created and sent to your doctor for signature. At this stage, you will be billed $49 and will not be billed again until you receive your first medication delivery.
Your application is sent to the pharmaceutical company. You will be billed again once you receive your medication. We handle the entire ordering process including requesting ongoing refills.

This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who will supply the medication, so it is important to make sure this information is accurate and up to date.
We will review the information that you have provided to determine whether you are eligible for patient assistance.

If you are approved by the pharmaceutical company, you will typically start receiving your medication in 6 – 8 weeks.

What is Namenda XR?
Namenda XR is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by AbbVie Inc. It contains memantine HCl, an NMDA receptor antagonist used to treat moderate to severe dementia of the Alzheimer’s type.
Namenda XR is not a cure for Alzheimer’s disease but helps to improve memory, awareness, and the ability to perform daily tasks.
What doses of Namenda XR are available?
Namenda XR is available as an extended-release capsule dosage form, in the following doses: 7 mg, 14 mg, 21 mg, and 28 mg. Namenda XR is also available in a titration pack, containing 28 capsules (7 x 7 mg, 7 x 14 mg, 7 x 21 mg, 7 x 28 mg).
The initial dose is 7 mg once daily, with a maintenance dose of 28 mg once daily. A target dose of 14 mg once daily is recommended in patients with severe renal impairment. Your dose is based on your medical condition.
Swallow the capsules whole. Do not crush or chew. If you have difficulty swallowing the capsules you may open the capsule and sprinkle the contents on applesauce. Swallow the mixture right away without chewing. If you miss a dose, take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of your next dose, skip the missed dose and take your next dose at the usual time.
Store Namenda XR at room temperature away from light and moisture. Also, read the patient information leaflet provided and always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
Namenda XR active ingredients
The active ingredient of Namenda XR is memantine hydrochloride.
Namenda XR side effects
The most common side effects of Namenda XR in clinical trials include:
- Diarrhea, constipation, stomach pain, vomiting
- Increased weight
- Back pain
- Drowsiness, somnolence
- Loss of bladder control
In rare instances, Namenda XR can cause more serious side effects. These can include:
- Raised urine pH, decreasing the urinary elimination of memantine resulting in increased plasma levels of memantine
- Mental and mood changes such as depression, and aggression
Your caregiver will assess the benefits of using Namenda XR against your risk of adverse effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Namenda XR to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
Namenda XR drug interactions
Namenda XR can interact with other medications. These include:
- Use with other NMDA antagonists – amantadine, ketamine, and dextromethorphan has not been evaluated
- Carbonic anhydrase inhibitors such as acetazolamide, methazolamide, sodium bicarbonate
- Drugs that use the same renal cationic system, including hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ), triamterene (TA), metformin, cimetidine, ranitidine, quinidine, and nicotine, could result in altered plasma levels of both agents
The AChE inhibitor donepezil HCl did not affect the action of either drug. Memantine did not affect AChE inhibition by donepezil. In patients with moderate to severe Alzheimer’s disease, the adverse reaction profile with a combination of memantine immediate-release and donepezil was the same as that of donepezil alone
This list is not exhaustive and other prescription drugs may interact with Namenda XR.
