Can I Just Stop Taking Namenda Or Do I Have To Be Weaned Off

Answer

Dear Ms. Todaro,

While I'm not aware of the reason you no longer wish to take Namenda,you should first consult with your physician to determine what is the best course of action to take. Speaking with your physician about your options can help you make an informed decision, regarding whether or not you should continue this medication or possibly switch to another one, and whether side effects may arise, especially if you have other medical problems. Also, consider having a relative or a trusted friend join you during this discussion. It's always helpful to have a second person present to pick up on anything you may have missed.
