Rivamer is prescribed mainly for people with mild to moderate dementia induced by Alzheimer's. It helps the brain to improve its functions and abilities to think, communicate and remember. Rivamer contains Rivastigmine, a medication for Alzheimer's Disease that helps improve the function of the nerve cells in the brain. It is a parasympathomimetic agent used to treat mild to moderate Alzheimer-related dementia. Rivastigmine functions by preventing the breakdown of an organic neurotransmitter 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.
