Rivastigmine Tartrate Information

Rivastigmine tartrate (Exelon®) is a prescription medication used to treat dementia due to Alzheimer's disease or Parkinson's disease. In clinical studies, people taking this drug were shown to have improved cognitive function ("thinking" functions, such as memory, language, and social interaction), compared to people taking a placebo (a "sugar pill" with no active ingredients).
 
It's important to review this drug's safety information with your healthcare provider before starting treatment. Rivastigmine may not be suitable for everyone, so make sure your healthcare provider is aware if you have any other medical conditions (such as problems with your heart or bladder) or if you are taking any other types of medicine. Dizziness, vomiting, and nausea are some of the most commonly reported side effects of this drug.
