GALAMER 4MG TABLET belongs to a group of medicines called 'anti-dementia agents' used to treat mild to moderate dementia caused by Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease is a neurological disorder, which causes dementia (memory loss), and slowly destroys the ability to think, learn, communicate, and handling daily activities. Dementia is a condition associated with impairment in memory, communication and thinking.
GALAMER 4MG TABLET contains 'Galantamine' that belongs to the class of 'Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitors'. Galantamine blocks the action of the enzyme cholinesterase, an enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter or a chemical messenger that transmits the message from one nerve cell to another nerve cell, muscle cell, or gland cell. GALAMER 4MG TABLET thus increases acetylcholine levels allowing the nerve cells to communicate. It restores the balance of neurotransmitters and thus improves mental function, such as memory and thinking.
Your doctor will decide the dose and duration based on your disease's severity and response to treatment. Common side effects of GALAMER 4MG TABLET include nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, headache, dizziness, drowsiness, shakiness (tremor), weakness, depression, and loss of appetite. These side effects are not familiar to everyone and vary individually. If you notice any side effects that are not manageable, please consult your doctor.
Uses of GALAMER 4MG TABLET
Dementia in Alzheimer's disease.
GALAMER 4MG TABLET treats mild to moderate dementia caused by Alzheimer's disease. It contains 'Galantamine', an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. Galantamine increases acetylcholine (a brain chemical) levels in the central nervous system by blocking the action of the cholinesterase enzyme. This process helps in transmitting nerve signals that play an essential role in memory. GALAMER 4MG TABLET is not a cure for Alzheimer's disease but improves memory, thinking awareness and the ability to perform daily functions.
