What is Rivamer?
Rivamer is prescribed to patients suffering from dementia caused by Alzheimer's disease or Parkinson's. This drug can help to improve the nerve cell functions in the brain. It does this by preventing the breakdown of a chemical known as acetylcholine, which helps with thinking abilities as well as memories. Low levels of this chemical are normally present in patients suffering from dementia.
