Sandoz Rivastigmine 10 How to Take

Rivastigmine belongs to a family of medications known as cholinesterase inhibitors. It is used to treat symptoms of mild to moderately severe 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. Rivastigmine prevents the breakdown of acetylcholine, thereby increasing its levels in the brain. Rivastigmine may improve cognitive function (memory, orientation, and language) and general ability to perform activities of daily living. The rivastigmine patch may take several weeks to begin working, and individual response varies.

Sandoz Rivastigmine 10 Dosage

The usual recommended starting dose is to apply one patch of the lowest dose (4.6 mg released every 24 hours) once a day. Your doctor may increase the dose after 4 weeks of treatment. The highest dose recommended is 13.3 mg every 24 hours.

Apply the patch to clean, dry, non-irritated skin on a flat body surface such as the chest, upper back, lower back, or upper arm. Make sure there is no hair, powder, oil, moisturizer, or lotion at the application site. Press the patch firmly in place with the palm of the hand for approximately 30 seconds, making sure the contact is complete, especially around the edges.

Each patch may be worn continuously for 24 hours, after which time the old patch should be removed and a new patch should be applied. Apply the new patch on a different skin site after removal of the previous one and do not apply a new patch to the same spot for at least 2 weeks. Consult the package insert, your doctor, or your pharmacist for specific instructions on how to use and properly dispose of the medication.

Only one patch may be worn at a time. After 24 hours, there is still medication remaining in the patch. If two patches are worn at the same time, there is a high likelihood of severe side effects occurring, including Heart Attack and death. Do not use the patch if it is cut, damaged, or altered in any way.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are using the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to use Sandoz Rivastigmine 10 (Rivastigmine-transdermal) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you forget to apply a new rivastigmine patch, remove the old one and apply a new patch as soon as possible. Continue with your regular dosing schedule for your next patch. Do not apply two patches to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice. If you miss more than 3 days of applying the rivastigmine patch, consult your doctor first before you begin to apply the next patch.

Store Sandoz Rivastigmine 10 (Rivastigmine-transdermal) at room temperature, in the original packaging. Protect it from light and heat, and keep it out of the reach of children.
