Overstimulation of the NMDA receptors by glutamate is implicated in neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease (AD) 1

The NMDA receptor antagonist memantine is approved for the treatment of moderate/severe AD alone or in combination with cholinesterase inhibitors2-4

Memantine has been shown to reduce clinical deterioration in moderate/severe AD1

Furthermore, treatment with memantine has been shown to reduce symptoms such as agitation, aggression, irritability,and appetite disturbances5
