As a spousal caregiver, this medication along with Aricept has been very effective. Cognitive skills, writing, alertness, sense of humor has all increased. I am very pleased with the effectiveness of this medication.

This medication has been a god send for my 86 your old mother. She was waking up in the middle of the nights with bouts of confusion and crying and pains throughout her body. She has been on Memantine for about 3 weeks and its been truly remarkable. She is a changed woman, I feel as if I have my mother back. She is laughing, planning her day with activities. She is just all around more cognitive and pleasant to be around. It may not be the wonder drug for everyone but it certainly worked for her. (I did break the pill in half the first week and now she is taking one pill a day). I hope this helps!

Care giver for 65 year old female. It seems to be helping her feel more "normal", more than she had been. My understanding is that it helps make the patient feel less affected by swings and that is how it seems to be working for her.
