People taking anticholinergic drugs over a long period of time may be at greater risk of developing dementia


#1

So many common medications on this list!

Scary to see all those familiar medications on that list! It seems as if we are all on a collision course with dementia. I know it is regular use of them that makes a difference, but then you add one drug along with or after another, a continued use of these anticholinergic takes place!

Thinking of printing that list out…

Tracy, Thank you for posting. Really important that folks are aware of the potential issues with long-term use of these medications. Had a discussion with some colleagues, and one pointed out that the “benadryl hangover” is related to this!
