Today’s post is different than my other entries, but an important message!!
Do these sound like any medications you currently have in your medicine cabinet?
Benadryl, Wellbutrin and Zyban, Dramamine, Advil PM, and Unisom?
Note that medicines like Dramamine, Benadryl, and Advil PM can be purchased over the counter.
Unfortunately, a new study from the Group Health Research Institute last week, which was published in JAMA Internal Medicine, showed that some very common medicines, some of which are nonprescription and likely found in your medicine cabinet, could be responsible for an increased risk of developing dementia.
The most common anticholinergic classes used were tricyclic antidepressants, first-generation antihistamines, and bladder antimuscarinics.
Please talk with your physician if you use any of these medications on a regular basis!!
Blessings and stay safe, Susan
