Drug Description


The EXELON PATCH is approved for managing dementia associated with Alzheimer’s disease (AD), encompassing patients across the spectrum of the disease’s mild, moderate, and severe stages. 

The Exelon Patch is indicated for treating mild to moderate dementia explicitly associated with Parkinson’s disease (PDD). 

Uses and Dosage 

Rivastigmine is indicated for the management of cognitive impairment associated with Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. While Rivastigmine does not provide a definitive cure for either condition, it can enhance memory and mental awareness and facilitate the execution of daily activities.  

The action mechanism involves restoring neurotransmitter equilibrium within the brain, thereby modulating the natural substances responsible for neuronal communication. 

The recommended initial dose for treatment initiation is the application of one EXELON PATCH with a strength of 4.6 mg/24 hours to the skin once daily.
