About Arizex Forte

Arizex Forte is a centrally acting reversible acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. Its main therapeutic use is in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease where it is used to increase cortical acetylcholine. Arizex Forte is postulated to exert its therapeutic effect by enhancing cholinergic function. This is accomplished by increasing the concentration of acetylcholine through reversible inhibition of its hydrolysis by acetylcholinesterase. If this proposed mechanism of action is correct, Arizex Forte’s effect may lessen as the disease process advances and fewer cholinergic neurons remain functionally intact. Arizex Forte has been tested in other cognitive disorders including Lewy body dementia and vascular dementia, but it is not currently approved for these indications. Arizex Forte has also been studied in patients with Mild Cognitive Impairment, schizophrenia, attention deficit disorder, post-coronary bypass cognitive impairment, cognitive impairment associated with multiple sclerosis, and Down syndrome.
