Namenda is a prescription medication approved to treat moderate to severe dementia caused by Alzheimer's disease. It is not a cure for Alzheimer's, but can help slow down the worsening of Alzheimer's symptoms.
Namenda for the treatment of Pathological Gambling should be consulted with a doc, please.
Severe problem gambling may be diagnosed as clinical pathological gambling if the gambler meets certain criteria. Although the term gambling addiction is common in the recovery movement pathological gambling is considered to be an impulse control disorder and is therefore not considered by the American Psychological Association to be an addiction.
Take care, be well & safe, please.
