Category Of Exelon 6 Mg Capsules
Mechanism Of Action Of Rivastigmine
It is suggested that rivastigmine binds reversibly with and inactivates cholinesterase (e.g. Acetylcholinesterase, butyrylcholinesterase), preventing the hydrolysis of acetylcholine, and thus leading to an increased concentration of acetylcholine at cholinergic synapses.
The anticholinesterase activity of rivastigmine is relatively specific for brain acetylcholinesterase

Physical activity increases blood flow to your whole body, including your brain. This might help keep your memory sharp. For most healthy adults, it is recommended to exercise for about least 150 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity
Just as physical activity helps keep your body in shape, mentally stimulating activities help keep your brain in shape and might keep memory loss at bay. Do crossword puzzles. Take alternate routes when driving.
Social interaction helps ward off depression and stress, both of which can contribute to memory loss.
Sleep plays an important role in helping you consolidate your memories, so you can recall them down the road. Make getting enough sleep a priority. Most adults need seven to nine hours of sleep a day.
A healthy diet might be as good for your brain as it is for your heart. Eat fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Choose low-fat protein sources, such as fish, beans and skinless poultry.
