Launch of Generic Namenda Tablets

Released: 07/13/2015   By: Carl Richie, Pharmacy Director

The generic equivalent of Namenda (memantine hydrochloride) has just been launched in the 5mg and 10mg strengths. Namenda reduces the actions of chemicals in the brain that may contribute to the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. Namenda (memantine hydrochloride) is used to treat moderate to severe dementia of the Alzheimer’s type.

Generic prescription drugs approved by the FDA have the same high quality and strength as brand name drugs. Generic prescription drug manufacturing and packaging sites must pass the same quality standards as those of brand name drugs.

Over the next 30 days, Carlisle Medical will be contacting physicians to inform them that the generic version of Namenda (memantine hydrochloride) is available.
