Generic Namenda is Now Available for the Treatment of Alzheimer's and Dementia


Generic Namenda is Now Available for the Treatment of Alzheimer's and Dementia

Generic Namenda (Memantine) is now available in the United States and Europe.


Mylan N.V. (Nasdaq: MYL) announced the U.S. launch of Memantine Hydrochloride Tablets USP, 5 mg and 10 mg, which is the generic version of Namenda®.

Mylan received final approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for this product, which is indicated for the treatment of moderate to severe dementia and Alzheimer's.
Consider this. When Aricept (Donepezil) went generic the price immediately fell from $280 for a 30 day supply to $153. Six months later when other generic drug makers were permitted to offer the drug the price fell to less than $10 for a 30 day supply (Costo Pharmacy).

Special Update - Generic Namenda Price -

Price of Namenda Drops by 96 Percent (Generic)


Please Note: You will have to ask your doctor for a new prescription for the generic Memantine.
