Frequently asked questions for Admenta 5mg Tablet MD

Frequently asked questions for Memantine

A psychotropic drug is a medicine affecting the mind, emotions, and behaviour. Admenta has a beneficial effect on the behavioural symptoms of patients with moderate to severe Alzheimer's Disease. Therefore it is considered as a psychotropic agent.
No. Admenta is not a narcotic. It does not have habit forming potential.
No. Mood stabilisers are used to treat mania and bipolar disorder. Admenta is not approved for these conditions yet, although studies are going on for the role of Admenta in these diseases also.
No. Admenta does not fit in the generally accepted "Nootropic" descriptor for healthy people. Nootropics are drugs which increase cognition/ motivation/ creativity in healthy individuals. Admenta, on the other hand, improves cognition in patients with Alzheimer's Disease.
Q. Is Admenta a cholinesterase inhibitor?
No. Admenta does not function by inhibiting the cholinesterase enzyme found in the endings of nerve cells. Rather, it acts by preventing the toxicity of an excitatory substance called glutamate in the brain.
Yes. Admenta acts as an antagonist at the NMDA receptor. This is the receptor in the brain through which glutamate, an excitatory substance, damages the nerve cells in the brain, which is found in Alzheimer's disease.
Cmax (Peak plasm concentration) of Admenta is 35-40 ng/ml.
Q. Can I take Admenta with vitamin D?
It has been reported in some studies that a combination of Admenta and Vitamin D improves cognition in Alzheimer's Disease. However, more studies are required to confirm this finding.
Q. Can I take Admenta with vitamin E?
Some studies have reported that among patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease, taking alpha-tocopherol (Vitamin E) with Admenta slows the progressive functional decline. However, more studies are required to confirm this finding.
Admenta is started when a person starts suffering from moderate to severe Alzheimer's Disease and has failed other options. Despite years of research for mild Alzheimer's Disease, Admenta has not been found to be useful in it.
Admenta is prescribed to improve the cognitive (memory) function in patients with Alzheimer's Disease when other treatment options like cholinesterase enzyme inhibitors have failed.
Q. What is the interaction of Admenta with metformin?
The interaction between Admenta and Metformin is minor. Admenta oral increases the level or effect of metformin by nonacidic drugs competing for the same pathway through the kidney.
Q. What is the interaction of Admenta with warfarin?
No known interaction between Admenta and Warfarin has been found.
The role of Admenta in Lewy Body Dementia (LBD) is controversial. Some studies suggest that it is safe and efficacious in this disease whereas others have shown exacerbation of LBD due to Admenta. Admenta is not approved for use in Lewy Body Dementia.
Q. Can Admenta combined with donepezil?
A combination of Admenta and Donepezil can be given in moderate to severe Alzheimer's Disease. It has been shown that the combination may have additive effects i.e. effects of both drugs are added when given together in some studies.

However, studies have not been promising so far and its routine use in neuropathic pain is not currently recommended.
Admenta is not indicated for use in Opioid withdrawal. In a number of small studies, it has been seen that Admenta decreased the expression of opioid physical dependence in humans but there is a need for more studies in this field.
