Current Treatments for Alzheimer’s Disease

Despite limited effectiveness, acetylcholinesterase inhibitors are the mainstay treatment option for Alzheimer’s disease. Four acetylcholinesterase inhibitors are approved for the symptomatic improvement of mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease: Aricept, the market leader, Exelon, Razadyne (formally Reminyl), and Cognex. One additional product, Namenda, a compound with a different mechanism of action, is approved for symptomatic improvement in patients with moderate to severe Alzheimer’s disease.
