Abstract

Memantine is a noncompetitive N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor antagonist that is well tolerated. However, dementia patients presenting with confusion or worsening of visual hallucinations with memantine treatment have been reported. In this report, we describe an Alzheimer's disease patient presenting with severe auditory hallucination with memantine treatment.
