Answer

Combination Drugs

Combination products may aid in ease of administration (decreased pill burden) and enhance compliance.

Memantine/donepezil (Namzaric)

Fixed dose combination capsule containing memantine extended-release and donepezil for patients with moderate-to-severe Alzheimer disease currently stabilized on donepezil 10 mg once daily. Administer once daily in the evening. Memantine is a NMDA receptor antagonist and donepezil is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor.
