医生给病人开这种药，因为它有助于将这种疾病可能造成的危害降到最低。因为同样的原因，人们可以避免他们可能需要面对的问题，否则阿尔茨海默氏症。这可以暂时缓解老年痴呆症的症状。乙酰胆碱酯酶抑制剂是治疗阿尔茨海默病的处方药物，因为这种药物有助于防止被称为乙酰胆碱酯酶的酶在大脑中分解乙酰胆碱(McKhann et al . 939)。这是因为阿尔茨海默氏症患者会失去使用乙酰胆碱的神经细胞。神经细胞的丧失可能是有害的，并可能进一步导致疾病症状的恶化。当这种药给病人服用时，它有助于增加大脑中不同神经细胞之间的交流。
In the brain of the person who suffers from the Alzheimer’s disease, there are some lower level chemicals which are known as acetylcholine. This is the chemical which help in the sending of the messages between the nerve cells. Because of the disease, there may be the condition under which there is a loss of these nerve cells which uses acetylcholine. In medical terms, this drug prevents the breaking down of an enzyme called as acetyl cholinesterase from breaking down the acetylcholine in the human brain. This can lead to the increase in the communication in the nerve cells and help in easy passage of nerve cells in the brain leading to better communication among the different nerve cells.
The doctor prescribes this drug to the patients as it helps in the minimization of the harms which may be caused due to this disease. Because of the same, the people can avoid the problems which they may need to face otherwise with Alzheimer’s disease. This can help to alleviate the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease on temporary basis. The medicine acetyl cholinesterase inhibitor is prescribed for Alzheimer’s disease because this medicine helps in the prevention of the enzyme which is named as acetyl cholinesterase from breaking down the acetylcholine in the brain (McKhann et al 939). This is because in case of Alzheimer’s there is loss of those nerve cells which uses acetylcholine. The loss of the nerve cells can be harmful and can further lead to worsening of the symptoms of the disease. When this medicine is given to the patient it helps in the increase in the communication between different nerve cells in the brain.
Some of the major side effects of acetyl cholinesterase inhibitor may be either be mild or it may be serious. Some of the mild side effects include diarrhea, headache, insomnia, Nausea and Vomiting. On the other hand, there are certain serious side effects which include the pain in the abdomen, lack of appetite, yellowness in the skin, dizziness, slower rate of heartbeat, weight loss at a sudden or at a substantial rate and weakness. There are also some of the less visible symptoms which include the actions on the parasympathetic nervous system which can lead to the problem of bradycardia, hypotension, hyper secretion and the decrease in the intraocular pressure. It can also lead to the sludge syndrome and the prolonged contraction of the muscles.
