Hello,:)
I am new to the forum, my mother has just been diagnosed with dementia. My father has asked me to look into the possibility of how we can get Ebixa. I am aware that it can be purchased via the internet, and with a private prescription.
Can anyone advise the best source for purchasing it, or how you can get a private prescription in the UK, to obtain it via a chemist.

Thanks,
Jimi. ;)

Hi - cannot help you but just interested in the replies. My husband is on Aricept and in now way will we be able to get Ebixa on NHS - I am aware that we may need to purchase when Aricept is no longer effective - our GP seemed to be totally unaware of Ebixa (said he had never heard of it!!!!!!!!). Hope you get some good replies Beckyjan

John had six months of Ebixa (on top of his Galantamine), but it had no effect at all. He's been off it now for six months, and I'm wondering whether to try it again, he has deteriorated so much recently.

I got this from my mother package leaflet .

Ebixa is used for treatment of patients with moderately severe to server Alzheimer’s disease.

Memory loss in Alzheimer’s disease is due to the disturbance of message signals in the brain.

The brain contains so called NMDA –receptors that are involved in transmitting nerve signals important in learning and memory .Ebixa belongs to a group of medicines called NMDA .Exbixa acts on NMDA –receptor improving the transmission of nerve signals and the memory


If you want to know what NMDA ( like I did ) this is a link that tell you about it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NMDA

(agree with you about the 'no guilt' on other thread - if we all do our best there is nothing to feel guilty about.
