You might be surprised to learn that there are plenty of medications to treat Alzheimer’s. The FDA has approved five of them.
They are Aricept (donepezil), Razadyne (galantamine), Namenda (memantine), Exelon (rivastigmine), and Namzaric (donepezil and memantine).
The reason you probably haven’t heard of them is that they don’t work very well. These drugs do nothing to stop the underlying disease—or even slow it down.
