The drug is also included in many formulations as one of the content which is available in market used for memory related problems. Alzheimer’s disease is a most common type of dementia characterized by progressive neuronal degeneration. Enhancement of the duration of life in human beings especially in developing as well as developed countries have resulted in increment in the patients number with dementia proportionally.
