Namenda

Recommended Posts

Hello Mark,

Wondering what your thoughts may be on Namenda for Parkinson's Dementia (Lewy Body Dementia)

Husband's advancing Parkinson's disease is becoming difficult to manage due to some pretty serious hallucinations and delusions.  Trying Seraquil, and it helps but 

I read an article at one point suggesting the success of Namenda for memory and even hallucinations. 

Any comments?

Thank you very much for your time!

Michelle

Michelle,

You are correct. Namenda is very commonly used for Lewy Body and Parkinson Disease Dementia. It does help with recall memory and hallucinations. This, as well as most Parkinson medications, should used by the "Start low and go slow method." The starting dose is 5mg and can be increased by 5mg every week until a maximum of 20mg is achieved. The other nice thing about this medication is that it also comes in an extended release formula.

I hope this helps and please keep me posted.

So far Namenda is working well for my husband. He's currently on 10.mg per day. Fingers crossed the drug continues to provide relief from hallucinations and memory loss. 

thanks once again!

Michelle
