Brand name medications are notorious for their difficult-to-pronounce and made-up-sounding names, and the generic forms of these drugs are often even worse. Well, we promise Alzheimer’s medications are no different. So many syllables! So many multiples of the same letter!
Do you take or administer an Alzheimer’s medication? Have you heard about some of them on TV? Do you think you can pick the real medication name out of a list of made-up ones?
You’ve got to have one very good memory or lots and lots of practice (or the right web page open in another tab) to get all of their names correct, so kudos to you if you’re one of those awesome caretakers who goes through the “fun” of organizing pills every day and trying to keep them all straight. We know it’s tough, and now is your chance to shine!
We’ve devised a quiz to separate the wheat from the chaff and let the cream of the crop rise to the top!
Test your knowledge of medication names with this brief quiz! Good luck, and don’t forget to share your results with your friends and challenge them to beat your score!
