Galamer 8 mg contains Galantamine, the main salt composition of this medication helps improve the nerve cells' function in the brain. It works by stopping the breakdown of a chemical called acetylcholine.
Acetylcholine is crucial for the processes of memory, thinking, and reasoning. This chemical is usually lower than normal in people with dementia. Galantamine is therefore prescribed for people with mild to moderate dementia induced by Alzheimer's disease.
Inform your doctor if you have any of these conditions: heart disease, a heart rhythm disorder, urination problems, stomach ulcers or bleeding, a seizure disorder, asthma, kidney disease, or liver disease.
Immediately stop using Galantamine medication and seek medical attention if you experience chest pain, low heart rate, bloody stools, coughing up blood, reduced urination, weakness, confusion, extreme thirst, or hot or dry skin.
There are several drugs which can interact with Galantamine. Notify your doctor about all medications and related products (OTC vitamin pills, herbal products and others) that you may be using before taking this medication. If you are scheduled for surgery, you may be required to suspend taking Galantamine for a short period.
Galantamine may impact your thinking capabilities and reflexes. So take extra care while indulging in activities that require a high degree of mental awareness and thinking, such as driving. Galantamine is an FDA pregnancy category B drug, but it is always best to inform your doctor if you are pregnant or a breastfeeding mom.

Take Galamer, an anti-convulsant medication, strictly as your doctor prescribes. The dosage may depend on factors like age, sex, drug allergies, or seriousness of the condition, among several other factors. Do not alter the dosage; however, your doctor may occasionally change the dosage to get the maximum benefit from the medication.
Galantamine extended-release capsule is usually taken once daily in the morning. It works best if taken with food. Avoid crushing, breaking, or chewing a tablet, as doing so may lead to too much medicine being released at once. Swallow it whole with water, and ensure to drink plenty of water (6-8 glasses) to prevent dehydration while taking Galamer.
