Brief Answer: NO, Detailed Answer: Hi and thank you so much for this query. Non of these patch contains glucose. Axona (caprylidene) is a medical food which contains a formulation of medium-chain triglycerides, specifically caprylic triglyceride, for the clinical dietary management of the metabolic processes associated with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease. By a special pathway, it produces substrate that can be used by the brain cells boosting up its memory activity. Exelon patch is a cholinesterase inhibitor. It works by increasing the amount of a certain substance (acetylcholine) in the brain, which may help reduce symptoms of dementia. In all, none of them contains glucose. They are indicated in the management of dementia. I hope this addresses your query fully. Thank you so much for using our services and please feel free to ask for clarifications if need be. I wish you the best of health. Dr. Ditah, MD.
