    I’ve never heard of this med.

    Do you mean Memantine?

    Like Pete I wonder if you mean Memantine. If you scroll down in this link there's a little bit about that drug -

    My husband was on it for a short time. He was prescribed it through the Memory Clinic. I certainly wouldn't describe it as a 'wonder drug'.

    Edit - I just googled Demantine. It seems that it's a different drug and this link suggests it is not available in U.K.

    I saw that web page. It doesn't give a lot of information but seems to imply that the med contains memantine hydrochloride, which is Memantine.
