Oblong light orange pill with FL in one side and a #5 in the other
Oblong light peach color tablet with FL in one side and 5 in the other side, in dented in the middle. ## I located the oblong tablet in description to be Namenda (5 mg). It is approved for treatment of moderate to severe Alzheimer's disease. To view more information about this drug, please click on the link below... If you have any other questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to assist you. ## I found 2 of these in the basement of my dad's house.

Torrent Pharmacy
Wife diagnosed with Parkinsons disease on Jan 16, 2006. She takes Sinmet, Namenda, Citalopram HBR (your manufacture), Exelon, Vitamin D, Vitamin B, and Ibuprophen. About 20+ pills a day. She has a terrible time taking your pills (1 and 1/2 20 mg tablets at breakfast). For some reason the Citalopram sticks to her tongue and she simply doesn't seem to be able to get them down. The other pills are not very difficult. I've tried apple sauce, yogurt, honey, juice, water, grinding them up into a powder (pills do not pulverize and many granules remain in the glass). She eats a normal amount of food; slowly but normal quantity. How can I help her swallow the Citalopram pills from you?

Namenda Effects
My mother is in her third month of taking Namenda. She is wanting to sleep all the time. She is one that was an early riser and early to bed, but now she gets up whenever I call to check on her. I go over during the day and she's usually asleep. This has been going on for about 4 or 5 weeks. Namenda is her only medication. Could this be the reason for her wanting to sleep? ## One of the side effects of Namenda is drowsiness. Perhaps your mother is more susceptible to this particular side effect. I suggest that you contact her physician to let him know about her sleep habits and ask if perhaps he needs to adjust the dosage, or if this drug may not be appropriate for her. By the way, other side affects include the following: confusion, dizziness, headache, insomnia, agitation, and/or ...

Has anyone been prescribed Namenda along with their narcotic pain medication? I am trying to study the mode of action but it has been 30 yrs since I had chemisty in school and I failed it 2x before I got a tutor to help me pass it.
