How Rivastigimine Works
Exelon (generic name: Rivastigimine) belongs to a family of medications called cholinesterase inhibitors. It is used to treat symptoms of mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease. Rivastigimine helps to prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine, the chemical in the brain associated with learning and memory, which is constantly being degenerated in patients with Alzheimer’s. Exelon can help cognitive function and the ability of patients to perform activities of daily living.
Generic Rivastigimine vs Brand Exelon patch
Brand and generic Rivastigmine are chemically and therapeutically the same. The most significant and apparent difference is the manufacturer; the brand is manufactured by Novartis and the generic is manufactured by a different manufacturer.
