Drug Treatments Available

While there is currently no cure for Alzheimer’s disease and no treatment that will stop its progression, there are several medications available that can help with some symptoms. These medications can slow down the decline of memory, language and thinking abilities.

For Mild to Moderate Alzheimer’s Disease:
Three drugs are available in Canada to treat symptoms in people with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease — Aricept™, Exelon™, Exelon™ Patch and Reminyl™. All are cholinesterase inhibitors.

For Moderate to Severe Alzheimer’s Disease:
Ebixa® (memantine hydrochloride) has been conditionally approved to treat symptoms in people with moderate to severe Alzheimer’s disease.
