Donecept (Donepezil) is an Alzheimer's medication which is used to help improve nerve cell function in the patient's brain. Its mode of action involves stopping acetylcholine (a type of chemical that is present in the brain) from being broken down. The brain's nerve cells release this chemical, after which a different chemical (acetylcholinesterase) breaks it down.

Uses
Donecept (Donepezil) is an Alzheimer's medication which is used to help improve nerve cell function in the patient's brain. Its mode of action involves stopping acetylcholine (a type of chemical that is present in the brain) from being broken down. The brain's nerve cells release this chemical, after which a different chemical (acetylcholinesterase) breaks it down.

Patients who are affected by Alzheimer's disease have low acetylcholinesterase levels, which can affect cognition and thinking skills. By preventing acetylcholinesterase from being broken down, this drug can cause an increase in acetylcholine levels, which in turn helps to improve cognition in patients who are affected with Alzheimer's disease.

Dosage and Administration
Patients who are undergoing treatment for Alzheimer's disease with Donecept (Donepezil) tablets will be told by their doctor the correct amount of medicine to take. In some cases, doctors instruct patients treating mild to moderate symptoms to start out with an initial dose of 5mg taken once per day. Some doctors tell their patients to take 10mg per day, however, because the dosage will vary for each patient, it is very important that only the dosage recommended by the doctor is taken.

Side effects
Possible side effects which patients taking Donecept (Donepezil) may experience include:

  • Fatigue
  • Behavioural changes
  • Discoloured skin
  • Changes in appetite
  • A decrease in body weight

It is important that the patient informs their doctor about any side effects which occur during treatment. You must go to see your doctor immediately if you experience bloody stools, urinary problems, seizures or any other serious symptoms.

Precautions
This medicine is only used to treat dementia or loss of memory when these symptoms are caused by Alzheimer's disease.
