What is Namzaric?

Namzaric is prescribed to treat moderate to severe dementia in adults who have Alzheimer’s disease. Namzaric comes as an oral capsule. Usually, it is taken once a day in the evening.

There’s no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, although medications can help slow the deterioration in brain function it causes. Namzaric can help prolong thinking, memory, and other areas of brain function if you have moderate to severe dementia.

Namzaric active ingredients

Namzaric has two active ingredients, memantine hydrochloride and donepezil hydrochloride.

Memantine hydrochloride, usually just called memantine, helps your brain cells (neurons) to send signals to each other. As Alzheimer’s causes protein plaques to build-up in your brain, it makes it harder for your neurons to pass signals to each other. Memantine helps by stimulating the areas of your brain cells that receive signals, called receptors. This makes it easier for your brain cells to receive and send signals and helps preserve brain function. Memantine specifically targets receptors involved in learning and memory.

Donepezil hydrochloride, usually just called donepezil, has a range of positive effects on your brain. Like memantine, it stimulates certain brain cell receptors, helping your brain cells send and receive signals. It also increases the number of certain neurotransmitters in your brain; chemicals that help your neurons send signals. Donepezil does this by blocking the enzymes that break down these neurotransmitters. This stops the enzymes from working and causes concentrations of the neurotransmitters to rise.
