Dealing with or watching a loved one deal with Alzheimer’s is not easy. Neither is paying for prescription Alzheimer’s medicine. But, by utilizing the services provided by Advocate My Meds, people affected by Alzheimer’s no longer have to dread the high costs of medications. We believe that Alzheimer’s medicine should be available and affordable to all who need it. For this reason and all other Americans who are unable to fork over the high costs in needed prescriptions, we have made it our mission to provide patient assistance.
What is Alzheimer’s Disease?
Alzheimer’s is a progressive incurable condition in which individuals experience dementia. In fact, it’s the most commonly diagnosed form of dementia. Dementia is when an individual suffers from symptoms of memory loss and loss of cognitive function. Most individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s are over the age of 65, but earlier symptoms may also occur. When symptoms occur before the age of 65, it’s usually classified as “early onset Alzheimer’s”. Dementia is caused by the death of brain cells. Once it starts, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s. But, advancements in medicine have allowed for the discovery of specific treatments proven to slow down this brain cell death. This reduces symptoms and increases the longevity of life in patients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and early onset Alzheimer’s.
Razadyne: Prescription Alzheimer’s Medicine
One treatment for Alzheimer’s is a prescription known as Razadyne. It’s a medication which includes an extract of the daffodil flower. This medication is known to help patients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s to lessen symptoms of cognitive function loss and also reduce quickness of mortality. In fact, in a 2-year study of 2,051 people conducted by Alzheimer’s and Dementia Weekly, it was found that Razadyne did help with both cognitive function and mortality rate. Acetylcholine, or ACH, is a vital naturally produced chemical used for brain function Those with Alzheimer’s produce less ACH as time goes on. Razadyne is believed to work by slowing the loss of ACH so that patients can experience reduced symptoms of Alzheimer’s.
Taking Razadyne Alzheimer’s Medicine
Only a doctor can prescribe a dementia patient with a prescription for Razadyne. Ask a doctor if this medication may be right for you or a loved one. Other prescriptions and conditions may interfere with Razadyne, so medical history may play a part in your eligibility for a prescription. The medication is prescribed in either liquid or extended release forms. Both administrations should be taken before meals, twice daily. If you experience extreme side effects from using Razadyne, you should contact your doctor immediately. Severe side effects of using Razadyne may include:
- Chest pains
- Blood in bowel movements or urine
- Infrequent urination
- Painful urination
- Decreased heart rate
- Nausea and loss of appetite
Paying for Alzheimer’s Medicine
It can be overwhelming knowing when a loved one is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. The medical expenses of a family member with diagnosed Alzheimer’s can be overwhelming as well. Although Alzheimer’s is not a normal part of aging, hundreds of thousands of Americans are affected yearly by this debilitating condition. It’s not right that these individuals have the capability to receive prescriptions to treat this condition but are unable to afford it. At Advocate My Meds, we believe that all Americans should be able to afford the cost of their needed prescriptions. This is why we have come up with a financial solution to help those in need.
