Urgent: Common Drugs CAUSING Dementia?!

“DO NO HARM.” 

That’s the foundation of the Hippocratic Oath… the ancient basis for responsible medical practice… and mainstream docs are VIOLATING IT with their short-sightedness! 

Many docs are quick to prescribe synthetic drugs WITHOUT understanding their long-term effects… WITHOUT adequate discussion of alternative options… and WITHOUT follow-up care! 

That kind of wanton practice is just despicable… 

And now, we know just how HARMFUL it can be. 

Researchers from the University of Nottingham have just confirmed that long-term consumption of certain common meds – pills you pop every day — may lead to DEVASTATING consequences for your brain! 

In fact, they could even CAUSE dementia! 

This groundbreaking observational study, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, was designed to assess the association between anti-cholinergic drugs and dementia risk in a large older population. 

Now, anti-cholinergic meds – including many antidepressants and antihistamines – work by blocking a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine, which is involved in muscle contraction, pain response, and more.  

Short-term side effects include confusion and memory loss, but these are not just quick, week-long prescriptions… 

NO! They are long-term regular medications that become part of your daily routine… and now, researchers have uncovered that these side effects are anything but short-term! 

In the study, scientists examined up to 20 years of prescription history from 58,769 patients with dementia and 225,574 subjects without the disease…  

And here’s where things get scary. 

Long-term use of a single strong anti-cholinergic medication (taken at the minimum effective dose) was associated with nearly a 50 PERCENT jump in dementia risk! 

Researchers found higher rates of dementia with specific anti-cholinergic drugs, including certain antidepressants, antipsychotics, bladder control drugs, and anti-epileptic drugs… 

And this isn’t the first study to turn up these alarming results.  

Three other studies have found similarly heartbreaking results, and while researchers aren’t sure of the exact mechanism behind these brain-draining effects, some say anti-cholinergic drugs may cause devastating vascular and inflammatory changes that affect your mind.    

As I said, anti-cholinergic drugs BLOCK the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, and one hypothesized cause of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia is the REDUCED synthesis of acetylcholine. 

This neurotransmitter is involved in both MEMORY and LEARNING… and when we are young, our brains can compensate for disruptions to this system, but as we age, even healthy brains are less able to compensate, leading to cognitive decline. 

This study highlights the need to be CAUTIOUS when accepting anti-cholinergic drugs in middle age and beyond. If your doc suggests starting up, ask questions and take some time to weigh the risks. 

If you are taking one of these drugs already, do not stop abruptly. Quitting any kind of long-term med may lead to debilitating withdrawal symptoms. Speak with your doctor about your concerns and possible alternatives.
