Exelon is a para sympathomimetic and is a reversible cholinesterase inhibitor which is used to treat symptoms in people with dementia related to Alzheimer's disease and also for the patients with parkinson's disease. An early patho physiological feature of Alzheimer's disease that is associated with memory loss and cognitive deficits is a deficiency of acethcholine as a result of selective loss of cholinergic nerve cells in the cerebral cortex, nucleus basalis and hippocampus.
Rivastigmine is also considered as therapy in people with Parkinson's disease (a brain and nervous sytem disease with symptoms such as slowing of movement, loss of memory, gait problems and muscle weakness and dementia). People with this disease have lower levels of acetylcholine which is important for the process of memory, thinking and reasoning. If the proposed mechanism is correct Rivastigmine may lessen the disease progression and cholinergic neurons may remain functionally intact. Exelon pills is known to emhance cognitive function and improve the ability to perform daily routine activities.
