    Nope...memantine and donepezil and both generic names.  Neither of them seem to do much good but, hey, I'll give him the pills every day anyway.  Good luck and grace in your journey with, I'm assuming, Alzheimer's Disease.

      "neither seem to do much good" is a very sad assumption,

      it is so important if a patient is put on donepezil to make sure it is

      suitable, side effects can kick in within 2/3 days,

      in which case request going to memantine, there is not supposed to

      ?be any improvement with any drug taken for dementia, but it has been

      proved that those coming off treatment go downhill quickly,

      possibly within several weeks,

      ?it is important to take medication every day at the same time,
