Galantamine Elevates Attention
In subjects with both Alzheimer’s and cerebrovascular disease, galantamine can have a significant impact on reversing attention skill loss. Impaired attention is one of the cognitive deficits detected in the early stages of AD. Degraded attention diminishes the ability to socially interact with other people and severely impairs specific skills, such as driving. This deficit can also increase the caregivers’ burden. Also, the benefits of galantamine are increased when taken with a choline donor such as choline alphoscerate, citicoline, and choline citrate.
