Wow. You really know your stuff. There is a secondary effect of memantine on AMPA and kainate receptors via NMDA receptors, but it is complex, and I don't understand it.
When I began memantine treatment at 20 mg, I immediately developed cognitive blunting. My doctor asked that I try Topamax instead at this juncture. If Topamax does not yield results, I might retry memantine, but starting at 5 mg.
Thanks for your input.
Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
