Description of Exelon Patches

Exelon Patches or generic Rivastigmine are prescribed to treat mild to moderate dementia caused by Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease. The Exelon Patches come as a transdermal system (patch) that delivers the active ingredient Rivastigmine through your skin for 24 hours. Your doctor will begin with a low dose of Exelon Patches and can increase the dosage depending on how well your body responds to this medication. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Exelon Patches Work

In those that are dealing with dementia from Alzheimer’s disease (AD)or Parkinson’s disease (PD), nerve cells in the brain have died, which results in low levels of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. This brain chemical is needed in order for nerve cells in your brain to communicate with each other.

When applied as directed, Exelon Patches improve the function of nerve cells in the brain by preventing the breakdown of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine that is important for the processes of memory, thinking, and reasoning. People with dementia usually have lower levels of this chemical and Exelon Patches will help to raise their level and reduce the symptoms caused by AD or PD.

Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease Info

Parkinson’s disease is often diagnosed in certain men and women over the age of 50. It is a brain disorder that leads to shaking, difficulty walking, stiff muscles, and movement problems as well as confusion and memory loss. Alzheimer’s disease is a form of dementia that gets worse with age.

Some of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s include difficulty with memory, emotions, behavior, language, and thinking. There is no cure for Parkinson’s disease or Alzheimer’s disease, but Exelon Patches can help to slow the progression of the dementia that can accompany both of these conditions and allow you to function better throughout your day.

Before You Apply Exelon Patches

Tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any current OTC or Rx medications you take, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements so it can be determined if Exelon Patches are safe for you.

Exelon Patches Precautions

Until you know how Exelon Patches will affect you, do not attempt any activities that require your full attention. While wearing one of the Exelon Patches, avoid exposing it to direct heat or prolonged direct sunlight. Heat may cause more of the medication to be released into your body, increasing the chance of side effects. Place the Exelon Patches on a different skin area every time it is changed to avoid possible irritation.
