About Admenta: Admenta (Memantine HCL) is a medication drug that is prescribed to patients suffering from a moderate or severe case of dementia which is caused by Alzheimer’s disease. Glutamate is the chemical responsible for the occurrence of Alzheimer’s disease, and this medicine works by blocking it. Your doctor may also prescribe this medicine for treatment of other different conditions. It is always advised to keep in mind during treatment that this drug is only effective in reducing the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and at no point does it cure the disease.
