The GPrX Dementia Sector focuses on prescription data for anticholinesterases (donepezil, galantamine and rivastigmine) and the NMDA antagonist memantine.
Patients with dementia may also be prescribed other medications to treat symptoms arising from dementia (such as antipsychotics, antidepressants and hypnotics) or to treat the underlying cause of the dementia, in the case of vascular dementia. The GPrX database contains all UK primary care prescription data. Prescribing data for these therapies can be found in their individual sectors.
