Why Donamem for Alzheimer’s disease?

It can only improve the patient’s ability to think and to function normally. This drug is available in tablet form that you can easily order here at a very affordable price.
How does Donamem work?
Donepezil in Donamem is an enzyme blocker. It works by restoring the balance of neurotransmitter, a natural substance in the brain. Donepezil can improve the mental functions of the brain such as the ability to speak, think and to interact with other.
Memantine is an NMDA receptor antagonist. It works by decreasing the abnormal activity in the brain. Memantine can help improve the ability to think and to remember. Together, they balance the level of the chemical messenger in the brain. They can help in the transmission of the nerve signals too.
