Galantamine Hydrobromide is the main active component in the mentioned medicine. It is the hydrobromide salt form of galantamine that shows anticholinesterase and neurocognitive-enhancing activities. It inhibits acetylcholinesterase to increase the concentration and enhance the action of acetylcholine. It is a ligand for nicotinic acetylcholine receptors that increases the presynaptic release of Ach and activate postsynaptic receptors. It improves neurocognitive function in Alzheimer’s disease and may reduce abstinence-induced cognitive symptoms that promote smoking relapse.
This particular medicine is indicated for the treatment of mild to moderate confusion i.e. dementia related to Alzheimer’s disease.

The exact cause of the condition Alzheimer’s disease is known fully. People with this condition have low amounts of chemical acetylcholine in their brains. A reduced amount of acetylcholine has been linked to dementia. The active component in the medicine Razadyne prevents the breakdown of acetylcholine.
