Nice | Alzheimer’s drugs

This is a guideline update from NICE on the use of  donepezil, galantamine, rivastigmine and memantine in Alzheimer’s disease.

Donepezil, galantamine and rivastigmine (the acetylcholinesterase – AChE – inhibitors) can now be used in mild disease, as well as in moderate disease. These drugs all work by increasing the level of ACh at sites of neurotransmission.
