Aricept

AriceptAricept, the popular name for Donepezil, is a drug used in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. Developed by Pfizer and Eisai, and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1996, Donepezil was the world’s largest selling Alzheimer’s drug in 2011. Though not a cure for or an inhibitor of the disease, it has been shown to improve cognition and behavior in Alzheimer’s patients.

Clinical trials for Donepezil found many patients experiencing nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Others indicated a significant loss of appetite, characterized medically as anorexia. Other side effects include insomnia and muscle cramps. Because the drug has been shown to slow down the heart beat, it presents a greater risk of cardiac event in people with prior cardiac history.

If you or someone you love has suffered injury after being prescribed Aricept, GetLegal has the tools and resources to help you find skilled legal representation to protect your rights. Visit our attorney directory, look for your geographic location and find the best lawyer for your situation.
