A common class of drugs known as anticholinergics, used to treat a number of illnesses such as depression and Parkinson’s disease, may also increase a patient’s risk of dementia by 30 percent, according to a new study published in the British Medical Journal. Anticholinergic drugs are also used to treat gastrointestinal disorders, urinary incontinence, epilepsy and allergies. It is estimated that 20 to 50 percent of Americans 65 and older take at least one anticholinergic medication.
