Description

General description

Rivastigmine tartrate is a cholinesterase inhibitor. It is also called as exelon.

Application

Rivastigmine tartrate has been used in cholinesterase inhibition assay.

Packaging

50 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Rivastigmine is an orally available, brain penetrant, reversible cholinesterase inhibitor that enhances cognitive function in patients with Alzheimer′s and Parkinson′s diseases. Rivastigmine inhibits both butyrylcholinesterase and acetylcholinesterase.

Rivastigmine tartrate is used to treat Alzheimer′s disease. It helps to improve thinking ability. It helps to increase cholinergic function by inhibiting acetylcholinesterase.
