Auro Galantamine ER How to Take

Galantamine belongs to the family of medications called cholinesterase inhibitors. It is used to treat symptoms of mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's Disease.

Alzheimer's disease is caused by the constant degeneration of certain nerve cells in the brain that make a chemical called acetylcholine. This chemical is thought to be important for the processes of learning and memory. Galantamine prevents the breakdown of acetylcholine, thereby increasing its levels in the brain. Galantamine is of the most benefit in mild-to-moderate disease and is of little benefit when the disease becomes severe.

Galantamine may improve cognitive function (memory, orientation, and language) and general ability to perform activities of daily living.

Auro Galantamine ER may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Auro Galantamine Er may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Auro Galantamine Er may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Auro Galantamine Er for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles.

People with Alzheimer's disease and their caregivers should be aware that if treatment has been interrupted for several days or longer, Auro Galantamine Er should be restarted at the lowest dose and then increased to the most current dose. If several doses are missed, do not restart galantamine on your own. It will be necessary to start at a lower dose and gradually increase to your previous dose. Consult your doctor if you miss several doses in a row.
