Dr. Reddy’s Launches Generic Namenda

Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories announced the launch of Memantine HCI Tablets, the generic version of Actavis’ Namenda.

Namenda is an NMDA receptor antagonist approved for the treatment of moderate-to-severe dementia of the Alzheimer’s type. It is postulated to exert its therapeutic effect through its action as a low to moderate affinity uncompetitive (open-channel) NMDA receptor antagonist which binds preferentially to the NMDA receptor-operated cation channels.
