Your doctor will explain how to use Capsule. Follow the instructions carefully to get the most benefit. The dose may change from time to time to suit your individual needs.

You should not wear more than one patch at a time. Normally, you will use one new patch each day, and the place you apply it is changed to avoid skin irritation. It can take up to 4 weeks for the symptoms to improve, so keep wearing your patches regularly.

You may have side effects more often during the start of your treatment or when your dose is increased. Usually, the side effects will slowly go away as your body gets used to the medicine. If the side effects do not go away or if they become severe, you should remove your patch and contact your doctor.

Before using Capsule, you should tell your doctor if you have ever had heart problems, stomach ulcers, epilepsy, or asthma.

It may also affect, or be affected by, some other medicines you are using, so let your doctor know what these are to be safe. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before taking this medicine.

WHAT IS EXELON 1.5MG?

it contains rivastigmine which belongs to a class of substances called cholinesterase inhibitors
It works by blocking the enzymes that break down acetylcholine into acetylcholinesterase and butyrylcholinesterase, thereby increasing the levels of acetylcholine to be increased in the brain, helping to reduce the symptoms of Alzheimer?s disease and dementia associated with Parkinson?s disease

EXELON 1.5MG CAPSULE belongs to a group of medicines called ‘anti-dementia agents’ used to treat mild to moderate dementia caused by Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease.

Alzheimer’s disease is a neurological disorder, which causes dementia (memory loss) and slowly destroys the ability to think, learn, communicate and handling daily activities. Parkinson’s disease is a central nervous system disorder that affects movement leading to shaking, stiffness and difficulty with walking, balance and coordination.

EXELON 1.5MG CAPSULE contains ‘Rivastigmine’ that belongs to the class of ‘Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitors’. Rivastigmine increases acetylcholine (a brain chemical) levels allowing the nerve cells to communicate.

It restores the balance of  neurotransmitters and improves mental function, such as memory and thinking. Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that transmit the message from one nerve cell to another nerve cell, muscle cell or a gland cell.

EXELON 1.5MG CAPSULE is available in oral tablet, capsule, liquid and transdermal patch formulation. Your doctor will decide the dose and duration based on the severity of your disease.

Common side effects of EXELON 1.5MG CAPSULE include nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, dizziness, drowsiness, shakiness (tremor), weakness and loss of appetite.

These side effects are not familiar to everyone and vary individually. If you notice any side effects that are not manageable, please consult your doctor.

Let your doctor know if you use any prescription and non-prescription medications you are taking, including other vitamins, before starting CAPSULE.

Please tell your doctor if you are allergic to CAPSULE or its components. Inform your doctor beforehand if you have a history of liver or kidney diseases, breathing problems (asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)), stomach/intestinal problems (ulcers, bleeding), heart diseases (sick sinus syndrome and other conduction disorders), fainting, fits, urination problems and enlarged prostate.

It is essential to let your doctor know if you are pregnant, planning to conceive or a breastfeeding mother. Avoid consuming alcohol along with EXELON 1.5MG CAPSULE as it can make you dizzy or drowsy.
