Symptomatic therapy: Just like many other causes of primary dementias, there is no definitive therapy or cure. However, some medications like donepezil and rivastigmine can help with the memory loss by slowing down the rate of progression of symptoms and allowing patients to maintain certain level of cognitive function for a longer period of time. They also help with some of the behavioral features.
