  1. The anticholinergic drugs don’t actually know how old the person taking them is, they are dangerous for people of all ages.

    And the anticholinergic drugs can lead to serious side effects “including confusion, dementia, blurred vision, falls and even death,” as well as “paralytic ileus, hyperthermia, heat stroke, … the anticholinergic intoxication syndrome … memory loss, disorientation, incoherence, hallucinations, psychosis, delirium, hyperactivity, twitching or jerking movements, stereotypy, … seizures … tardive dyskinesia” and more.

    But I am right now trying to help an “older patient” who was put on an antidepressant because her husband died, how stupid can the doctors get? Heal from the falls, memory loss, disorientation, incoherence, hallucinations, hyperactivity, caused by the antidepressant. It’s disgusting the harm being done by the antidepressant pushing doctors, and it’s even more disgusting that these doctors won’t confess to the harm they are doing to their patients.
