Rivastigmine Alzheimer's drug. Molecular model of the Alzheimer's drug rivastigmine. Atoms are represented as rods and are colour-coded: carbon (light blue), hydrogen (yellow), nitrogen (dark blue) and oxygen (red). Rivastigmine belongs to a class of drugs known as cholinesterase inhibitors. It inhibits the enzyme acetylcholinesterase, which destroys the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Lack of neurotransmitters is thought to play a role in Alzheimer's disease, a common cause of dementia in the elderly. Rivastigmine does not cure the disease, or slow its progression, but it can improve cognitive function.
