Is there a treatment for Alzheimer Disease?
As of June 2016, there is no treatment that can cure or prevent Alzheimer Disease. Certain symptoms do have treatments available. Some drugs have been shown to improve symptoms of depression, behavioral changes, or cognitive decline. Donepezil, rivastigmine, galantamine, and memantine have been used in patients with Alzheimer Disease. Your neurologist can help you select the right medication for you based on your symptoms. Sometimes vitamins and other over the counter remedies are recommended.
