Re-Evaluate Whether Namenda Is Helping Your Alzheimer's Patients
Questions will come up about switching patients' meds when Namenda (memantine) tabs are discontinued this August.
The manufacturer will stop selling Namenda tabs...and will focus on once-daily Namenda XR instead.
If needed, switch patients on Namenda 10 mg BID to Namenda XR 28 mg once a day. Both cost about $300/month...and they're likely to have similar tolerability and efficacy.
