    Difference

    hello
    in alzheimers the person tends to forget a lot of things
    he becomes absent minded
    his memory power has weakened
    in case of parkinsons certain nerve cells (neurons) in a part of the brain called the substantia nigra die or become impaired. Normally, these cells produce a vital chemical known as dopamine. when these cells get damaged it leads to parkinsons
    medications like Amantadine hcl is used for the effective treatment of parkinsons disease
