My Mom had been using the Excelon patches for a few months, There was no difference in her memory while wearing these patches. I know that even though there is no change in memory it does slow the progession down of the disease, but the patches cost over $200.00 Per Month and her insurance did not cover the medication. I don't know yet if Namenda is covered by her insurance but until I find out I was just wondering if anyone could tell me the cost of Namenda. Thanks for any advice someone could give me about this medication.

Ask your Pharmacy for a guide as to what the cost of Namenda may be. If your insurance does not cover it these links may help.
Alternatively you could check to see whether the manufactures of Namenda offer any patient assisted programmes (Forest Labs - ask your pharmacy for contact details.)
