No effect of donepezil on striatal dopamine release in mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease
Objective: Work in experimental animals suggests that an interaction with dopaminergic networks might explain some of the therapeutic effects of the cholinesterase inhibitor class of drugs. This study aimed to test whether acute (single 5 mg) or 4–8 weeks (5–10 mg) of treatment with oral donepezil would elicit measurable striatal dopamine (DA) release in patients […]
Donepezil for dementia with Lewy bodies: a randomized, placebo-controlled trial
