Allergan, Adamas announce new Namzaric dosage strengths availability


DUBLIN and EMERYVILLE, Calif. —Allergan and Adamas Pharmaceuticals on Thursday announced the availability of all four dosage strengths of its Namzaric (memantine and donepezil hydrochloride) extended-release capsules. 


Namzaric is a fixed-dose combination of memantine and 10 mg donepezil hydrochloride indicated to treat moderate to severe Alzheimer’s disease in patients stabilized on 10 mg of donepezil hydrochloride. The Food and Drug Administration approved the drug in July. 


“We are excited that with the new available dosage strengths patients with moderate to severe Alzheimer's disease, who are currently stabilized on Aricept, donepezil hydrochloride (10 mg) can now start combination therapy directly with NAMZARIC,” Allergan chief medical officer Dr. Gavin Corcoran said. Namzaric offers these patients the benefits of combining two products that each work differently to treat moderate to severe Alzheimer's disease, without increasing the number of pills a patient and their caregiver need to administer each day.”


Namzaric will be commercially available in 30-count bottles of 7-, 10-, 14-, 21- and 28-mg memantine/10-mg donepezil hydrochloride dosage strengths.
