It is the most common cause of dementia in the elderly, with all that this implies in the way of distress for patients and families and economic loss in the form of the costs entailed in the long-term care of the patients totally disabled by the disease.

There is no specific cause for this disorder and it mainly indicates an abnormal breakdown of acetylcholine. Though, the cause is not specific, its effect is clear. Alzheimer's disease damages the brain cells.
The onset is insidious and subtle, with changes most noticeable first in memory for recent happenings and in other aspects of mental activity. Psychiatric disturbances such as depression, anxiety, odd, unpredictable quirks of behavior, delusions and hallucinations may be salient features in the early stages. Progression is usually gradual and slow, and unless other medical conditions supervene, it may smolder on for 10 more years.
More unusual disorders of thought and intellect, including aphasia, apraxic disturbances and abnormalities of space perception, may be seen, especially in the presenile group. Exceptionally, and only in the advanced stages of the disease, extra pyramidal signs appear; the patient walks in a shuffling manner with short steps, and there is a generalized stiffness of the musculature with slowness and awkwardness of all movements. In some patients, sudden jerk like contractions of various muscles may occur in the presence of otherwise typical Alzheimer's disease, but this is unusual and should immediately raise the suspicion of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Terminally, the patient may become nearly decorticate, losing all ability to perceive, think, speak or move.
In this disorder, there is an abnormal breakdown of acetylcholine. Therefore cholinesterase inhibitors are indicated to block the breakdown of acetylcholine. The commonly prescribed drugs are donepezil hydrochloride, rivastimgine, galantamine and tacrine.
Most of the physicians recommend donepezil hydrochloride and it is useful in treating mild, moderate and severe stages of Alzheimer's disease. While tacrine is not much preferred because of its undesirable side effects.
