memantine is like an antipsychotic or benzo-- until you reach a steady state for a few days of taking the med at the same time of day each day (in memantine's case, twice a day) you will feel mentally retarded.
I've been on 10 mg 2x/day for 3 weeks and feel nothing-- not sure if i takes longer to kick in...
> If my memory serves me correctly, I lasted three days on memantine. I stopped taking it because of a worsening of my depressive symptoms, particularly diminished energy and psychomotor retardation. I didn't notice any improvement in my cognition while I was on memantine, but then again, I only stayed on the medication for three days.
