Senior Health Home > Tacrine
Tacrine is commonly used for treating mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease. It works by preventing a specific enzyme from breaking down acetylcholine in the brain. The medication can help slow down the decline of cognitive function, but it is not a cure for Alzheimer's. Potential side effects include nausea, diarrhea, and high liver enzymes.
- High liver enzymes
- Nausea, with or without vomiting
