Thank you for asking

I read your question and i understand your concern. Memantine is a memory drug used in dementia especially of alzheimer disease. It is given upto 20 mg per day in 2 divided doses or 28 mg of slow release in two divided doses.

For side effects, dizziness, confusion, headache, nausea, constipation, cough etc are common. Rest are very less prevalent side effects.
