What Drugs INCREASE Your Risk of Dementia (Updated List 2018)

1661 ratings | 27271 views
Описание: We take medication expecting it to make us better, or make us feel better. The last thing we want is to take a medication for one thing, and have it make something much more important get worse. If you are taking any of the Anti-Cholinergics as a long-term medication, then that is exactly what might be happening. You might be taking something to help you sleep or to lessen muscle spasms, and what it might be doing in the background is increasing your risk of developing dementia. Do you take any of the medications I discuss? Please leave me a comment below of the drug name if you have been taking one of these meds daily. Here is the list, it is not complete, but contains all the most common drugs: Amitriptyline (Elavil) [high AC activity] Atropine [high AC activity] Benztropine (Cogentin) [high AC activity] Chlorpheniramine (Actifed, Chlor-Trimeton, etc.) [high AC activity] Chlorpromazine (Thorazine) [high AC activity] Clomipramine (Anafranil) [high AC activity] Clozapine (Clozaril) [high AC activity] Cyclobenzaprine (Amrix, Fexmid, Flexeril) [moderate AC activity] Cyproheptadine (Periactin) [moderate AC activity] Desipramine (Norpramin) [high AC activity] Dexchlorpheniramine (Polaramine) [high AC activity] Dicyclomine (Bentyl) [high AC activity] Diphenhydramine (Advil PM, Aleve PM, Benadryl, Tylenol PM, Unisom, etc.) [high AC activity] Doxepin (Adapin, Silenor, Sinequan) [high AC activity] Fesoterodine (Toviaz) [moderate to high AC activity] Hydroxyzine (Atarax, Vistaril) [high AC activity] Hyoscyamine (Anaspaz, Levbid, Levsin, Levsinex) [high AC activity] Imipramine (Tofranil) [high AC activity] Meclizine (Antivert, Bonine) [high AC activity] Mepenzolate (Cantil) [high AC activity] Nortriptyline (Pamelor) [high AC activity] Olanzapine (Zyprexa) [high AC activity] Orphenadrine (Norflex) [high AC activity] Oxybutynin (Ditropan, Oxytrol) [high AC activity] Paroxetine (Brisdelle, Paxil) [low AC activity] Perphenazine (Trilafon) [high AC activity] Prochlorperazine (Compazine) [moderate AC activity] Promethazine (Phenergan) [high AC activity] Protriptyline (Vivactil) [high AC activity] Pseudoephedrine HCl [moderate to high AC activity] Scopolamine (Transderm Scop) [high AC activity] Thioridazine (Mellaril) [high AC activity] Tolterodine (Detrol) [high AC activity] Trifluoperazine (Stelazine) [high AC activity] Trimipramine (Surmontil) [high AC activity] Other drugs which have AC Activity and could pose a risk: Alprazolam (Xanax) [low to moderate AC activity] Amantadine (Symmetrel) [low AC activity] Baclofen [moderate AC activity] Brompheniramine [high AC activity] Carbamazepine (Tegretol) [moderate AC activity] Carbinoxamine (Arbinoxa) [moderate to high AC activity] Carisoprodol (Soma) [moderate AC activity] Cetirizine (Zyrtec) [moderate AC activity] Cimetidine (Tagamet) [moderate AC activity] Clemastine (Tavist) [moderate to high AC activity] Clidinium & chlordiazepoxide (Librax) [low to moderate AC activity] Clorazepate (Tranxene) [low AC activity] Codeine [low AC activity] Colchicine [low AC activity] Darifenacin (Enablex) [moderate to high AC activity] Digoxin (Lanoxicaps, Lanoxin) [low AC activity] Dimenhydrinate (Dramamine, Gravol, etc) [high AC activity] Diphenoxylate/atropine (Lomotil) [moderate to high AC activity] Disopyramide (Norpace) [low to moderate AC activity] Flavoxate (Urispas) [moderate AC activity] Fluphenazine (Prolixin) [moderate AC activity] Furosemide (Lasix) [low AC activity] Hydrochlorothiazide (Esidrix, Dyazide, HydroDIURIL, Maxzide & others) [low AC activity] Loperamide (Imodium) [moderate AC activity] Loratadine (Alavert, Claritin) [moderate AC activity] Loxapine (Loxitane) [moderate AC activity] Maprotiline [low to moderate AC activity] Meperidine (Demerol) [moderate AC activity] Methocarbamol (Robaxin) [moderate AC activity] Methotrimeprazine (Nozinan) [moderate AC activity] Nifedipine (Adalat, Procardia) [low AC activity] Olanzapine (Zyprexa) [moderate AC activity] Orphenadrine (Norflex) [moderate AC activity] Quetiapine (Seroquel) [moderate AC activity] Procyclidine (Kemadrin) [moderate AC activity] Propantheline (Pro-Banthine) [moderate to high AC activity] Ranitidine (Zantac) [low AC activity] Solifenacin (VESIcare) [low to moderate AC activityy] Thiothixene (Navane) [high AC activity] Tizanidine (Zanaflex) [high AC activity] Tramadol (Ultram) [low AC activity] Trihexyphenidyl (Artane) [high AC activity] Trospium (Sanctura, Spasmex) [high AC activity] ------- Join me and let's optimize your health! ------- FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/kendberry.md/ ▶Become a Patron here: https://goo.gl/kJJYws Ken D Berry, MD, FAAFP, is a Board Certified Family Physician and Fellow in The American Academy of Family Physicians.

Rainey Shafer (10 months ago)
Thanks Doc Berry for always watching out for our health! I DO take one of the drugs listed above. For my low back and only as needed. I am SO careful about medications and always asking my Doc. if I still need it.
Rainey Shafer (10 months ago)
And that is precisely what we are trying to avoid. I would someday like to be totally med free.
Kenneth Woolard (10 months ago)
Also! No side effects! You don't even feel like you are taking something!
Rainey Shafer (10 months ago)
Thanks for the info :)
Kenneth Woolard (10 months ago)
Take it orally! It is awesome! I had a tooth ache and could not get a dental appointment for four more days. I used Motrin for pain. Before sleep I took CBD oil and it was the bomb. Fell asleep and woke up pain free. I cannot say enough. I was in Hawaii with my mother and her epidural injection did not work. I suggested CBD oil and she consented. I found a shop and walked to it and purchased some. The rest is history. CBD really helped my mom where the epidural failed! I did not get a root canal like my dentist suggested either!!!!!! I am much better. I had just bitten down hard on nuts with a sensitive, large filling! Don't use Motrin. It impairs immunity!!!
Rainey Shafer (10 months ago)
Topical, sub-lingual or inhaled? How does CBD oil work for low back pain?
Daniel Styles Music (3 days ago)
I saw aprazolam is on the list, what about other benzodiazepines?
schuhplattler (1 month ago)
If he lists these drugs, he really buries that list in this video, so here are examples from Wikipedia: Examples of common anticholinergics: Antimuscarinic agents Antipsychotics (clozapine, quetiapine)[17] Atropine Benztropine Biperiden Chlorpheniramine Certain SSRIs (citalopram, sertraline)[17] Dicyclomine (Dicycloverine) Dimenhydrinate[17] Diphenhydramine[17] Doxepin Doxylamine Glycopyrrolate Glycopyrronium Ipratropium Orphenadrine Oxitropium Oxybutynin[17] Promethazine Propantheline bromide Tolterodine Tiotropium Tricyclic antidepressants (28 compounds with numerous trade names) Trihexyphenidyl Scopolamine Solifenacin Tropicamide[4] Antinicotinic agents Bupropion - Ganglion blocker[18][19][20] Dextromethorphan - Cough suppressant and ganglion blocker[21][22][23] Doxacurium - Nondepolarizing skeletal muscular relaxant Hexamethonium - Ganglion blocker Mecamylamine - Ganglion blocker and occasional smoking cessation aid[24] Tubocurarine - Nondepolarizing skeletal muscular relaxant

I’m 63 yo and have been diagnosed with Sjögren’s Syndrome. Took several years to get diagnosis. I’m also having muscle spasms. My Neurologist prescribes pamelor/nortryptiline for muscle spasms and rest. I’ve been so agitated and mean to my husband. It’s like I am SO MAD AT HIM! And, I do not know WHY. I’ve been taking it for 4 days. Can this drug affect me that quick??
Angela Armageddon (1 month ago)
Benzodiazepines should be at the top of the list but it’s completely missing

What about Doxylamine? I've taken this for years for sleep. If so what's a good alternative? Melatonin leaves me with a hangover.

I've been taking omeprole 40 mg since I was 24 and am now 42. I take it everyday and demtia runs in my family. I am now experiencing weird things with my memory and the length of time it takes to think.

Christina Parker (2 months ago)
I had seen something about dementia and the relation to herpes oral or otherwise...every time one gets a cold sore and the affect in your system caused plaque in the brain and over time the more outbreaks the more plaques within the brain this they saw with MRI. What is your thoughts in this ?

Suzanne Hentschel (2 months ago)
I have been taking 2 Benadryl EVERY night for over 20 years. If I do not take it I cannot fall asleep. I tried meditation and a holistic sleep aid, but those do nothing for me. I just took my last dose! What is safe to use as a sleep aid? I have been experiencing terrible memory loss for the past ten years, but have tried to disguise it. More recently I have a hard time putting names to faces, my handwriting is terrible, and I often (several times a day) use the wrong word or can not remember what the word for something is. I’m terrified. I’m 62 years old. HELP!

Very informative, but I take exception with his comments regarding “blindly, thoughtlessly, taking medications and not asking questions regarding long term use.” - During the 20+ years that I’ve been prescribed Xanax, I’ve asked various physicians about the side effects of long term use. Each time, I’d get a similar reply... “It’s perfectly safe...I wouldn’t keep you on it, otherwise.” - If it weren’t for the internet, I’d still believe what I’ve been told over the years. — Each time I’m prescribed a new medication, I ask as many questions as my nine minute appointment will allow, and follow with online research. I suspect that many people do the same and don’t “blindly, thoughtlessly” take medication with no interest in side effects from long term use.
Mel Rose (3 months ago)
Agree completely. More often than not I go into the doctor appt knowing more about my condition from the internet than they do (daily migraines) and they just treat us like we have a boo-boo on our knee.

I just started prozac and vistaril, I told my Dr that I didnt want to talw the vistaril but they won't give me anything besides the vistaril for anxiety. I told them I have low cortisol already and do not want to take the vistaril because it makes you foggy.

Your videos are very helpful Dr Berry, please make a video on ace inhibitors, I am pre diabetic and my nephrologist put me on 5 mg of enalapril at bedtime, he says it protects my heart and kidneys
Jennifer S (4 months ago)
Dr Berry, thank you for this. I see some antihistamines on the list but not mine so I wanted to know your thoughts. I take Singulair, Xyzal and Flonase for allergies for spring and fall. Without them I get awful headaches. I have also been getting allergy shots for 2 years but I guess they didn’t help because the severe headaches came back as soon as ragweed season started. Are my meds in this category you discussed? ❤️Love your videos!
Cathy Trent (4 months ago)
Omeprazole, benadryl, ecitalopram, Losartan, motoprolol Scary!! Going to make an app with my Dr right now!! Been on Keto 1 month and cut my ecitalopram in half Can't wait to be off of these! Tried to stop omeprazole. ..Gerd is terrible...everyone in my family has it
Twila Rolff (4 months ago)
If you've been taking them long term, but stop now, will the damage reverse?? 😯

Make a document that can be saved and printed and put a link to it here from your website. Can't copy/paste this list to reference later.
shinyshinythings (4 months ago)
I didn’t see it on the list but Ativan is another one that causes memory loss. Saw it with my own eyes as my whip-smart mom lost her memory after just two weeks of taking it daily for panic attacks. She was in her mid-70s at the time and still “with it” until the Ativan.

Furosemide helps pull off fluids so I can breathe. Also taking spironolactone. Lung failure ain't fun y'all. ;- ( BUT, I'm hoping keto way of eating will lessen inflammation all over so I can reduce or remove these all together.

That's the attitude! Carbon(hydrate) make us hold water too so here's hoping! Please give it a good try, six month. I have chronic disease and it's really helped me!

Hi Dr Berry. 3 years ago I was diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation when I had a TIA. I was given a number of drugs most of which I have ditched since being on the keto diet for 6 months. I am still taking Apixaban and I wonder if you could tell us what you think about NOACs. Thank you for all your helpful videos.
Siri Gulliksrud (5 months ago)
I take 2x 5mg Oxybutynin every night to treat my hyperhidrosis. I cannot live without them, been on it for over 4 years now. My doctor tried to get me to wean off them but the sweating comes back after one day or two with lower dosage. The sweating also causes itching rashes as I have atopic - prone skin. What could I do?
dana102083 (1 month ago)
Have you tried it discussed Botox? I know it was the first thing treated with it. I use it myself for migraines and couldn't live without it, unfortunately.
rifka raider (6 months ago)
My dear friend who had dementia took several of these drugs! One if them was Xanax, which she took for 9 years for anxiety and had become addicted to it. She had to go through a drug treatment program in 1989 to get off of it and was very ill for 5 years afterwards.

I have taken Lotradine in Claritin-D or the store brand for it for 22 years because of SEVERE allergies topical and respiratory and orally to a plethora of things .What about Asthma inhalers? MY health took a drastic decline after starting on an emergency inhaler then Qvar  switched to Durel (or Zenhaler is another name for it. Which is lower dose than Qvar). and What about Nasacort nasal spray? The 3rd medicine I am on daily for allergies/asthma. Before getting Asthma I was only - Claritin-D for 18 years with NO other drugs.
Sara Brown (7 months ago)
Out of the 3 medications that I take, 2 are on this list. I have a feeling the 3rd should also be on this list. I take them for debilitating migraines. The are preventive migraine medications. I would like to say I could control my migraines with diet and other non medical ways, but in 19 years, these are the only things that allow me to live a normal life. This video is really something to think about. I'll have to talk to my neurologist when I go in next.
shinyshinythings (4 months ago)
Dr Berry has a video on preventing migraines through nutrition!
cinnamon girl (6 months ago)
I don't doubt that they do work for you. But if you have been taking the meds for many years, it's always worth a shot to revisit "diet and other non medial ways", as you said you have tried that in the past. There is much more information concerning a 'healthy" diet these days, more than even a few years ago. And a person's body is constantly changing. What did not work for you years ago may be promising now.
Mary Stukenholtz (7 months ago)
I don’t see a list...I’m sure I’m overlooking it somehow. Watching this on my mobile.

Ramona DeLaney (8 months ago)
I take naproxen and Zantac daily. Though naproxen is not on your list it was on a google search for anti-chlorogenic drugs. Zantac from your list was not listed on the google search. I'm not having dementia symptoms though plan to stop taking those 2 medications ASAP. My Dr. had me take Prilosec and I switched it to Zantac due to proton pump inhibitor concerns. Thanks for your educational video. I'm 5 days into Keto so hope for decreased GI symptoms soon. So far, Keto hasn't helped indigestion.

Give it time! Aim for the best quality foods. Look into fasting. Do not forget about your electrolytes!
Laura Gilbert (8 months ago)
My husband and I both take Benadryl every night for allergies. If I do not take it before bed, I wake up with nose bleeds and if he does not take it, his nose stops up and he is unable to breathe even with his BiPAP machine. Is there an alternative that would help with this without increasing the risk of dementia? Preferably not a nose spray. My husband already takes Flonase as well, but it and most other nose sprays make my nose bleed even more severely than if I was not taking anything at all.
Karen Yancey (9 months ago)
I’ve been taking Alprazolam for years for insomnia and anxiety since entering peri-menopause. I started around 50 and I’m 57 now. I’m post-menopausal now but still deal with insomnia and anxiety and low-grade depression. My MIL has dementia. My parents have both passed and neither one had dementia. However, dementia is robbing us of my MIL. It’s so very sad. So obviously your video has created concern. I already have trouble remembering and coming up with the right word I’m searching for in my brain. I’ve attributed those realities to aging and a very busy lifestyle. Thoughts?

where's the list
Coffeewhore (9 months ago)
Holy heck! Thank you for this. I am on several of these and have been for years. I have psoriatic arthritis...the full deal with psoriasis, hidradenitis suppurativa, crohn's and ankylosing spondylitis, and psoriasis. It is a difficult combination to deal with as a patient and I am know it challenges my doctor's as well. My memory and concentration have been getting worse and although I keep complaining to my GP about it she doesn't seem to understand how serious the issue is to me. My best friend and I have gotten to where we joke about it to destress the issue a bit. She buys me goldfish stuff as a way to poke fun at it. This suits my sense of humor so I love to be mistreated..haha. I do have the memory and attention span of a goldfish. I will ask my GP about the meds off this list that I am taking. I will miss the tizanidine as it is the only thing that helps my crippling muscle pain.

RT S (10 months ago)
As a colorectal cancer survivor, one of the parting gifts of the treatments that saved my life, was some loss of bowel control. When the urge came, I needed to find a bathroom quickly. I was told I would never regain control, because the muscles had been damaged by the radiation treatments.There were several close calls, so my physician put me on a lifetime regiment of Loperamide (Imodium). I was told it was safe, but I still had concerns about taking any drug forever. I slowly weened myself off of it, and after watching your video, I'm really glad I did. Over time and with the addition of Intermittent Fasting, I now have completely normal and predictable bathroom habits.

Very thankful for this video. My Mom took so many of these for years. Now in old age she can't function properly. No matter how many times I told her to stop, she would never listen. I had to really force the Doctors to look at what she was taking in the hospital. Now she holds it against me. I can tell you that these drugs used over long term also destroy relationships in families as well!

Wow...so that woke me up. I have been taking Tramadol for 20 years (for chronic back pain). I have asked several times to go to something else, but nothing seems to work as well (without “worse” side affects like higher addiction risk) according to my pain mgmt team. I will start to insist on getting off of it and transition to anything else. My mother died from early-onset Alzheimers. I do not need an addition risk factor (may be too late anyway) for getting it.
Faye Booth (10 months ago)

Thank you Dr Berry for your hardwork and commitment to our good health. I take: Zopiclone:---- (From google "Zopiclone. Zopiclone (brand names Zimovane and Imovane) is a nonbenzodiazepine hypnotic agent used in the treatment of insomnia. Zopiclone is molecularly distinct from benzodiazepine drugs and is classed as a cyclopyrrolone.") Venlafaxine: ---(Venlafaxine is a selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) used for treating depression. Other drugs in this class include milnacipran (Savella), duloxetine (Cymbalta), and desvenlafaxine (Pristiq).) Also Metformin and Ramipril. I was wondering if these have any effect as far as Dementia is concerned. Thanks again.

Boy am I glad I watched this video, I have been taking UNISOM for about 6 months for sleep deprivation. WOW! I didn't know that is could cause these effects. That stuffs going in the trash today. The reason I opted for Unicom (OTC) is that it said non-habit forming. I was on Ambien for years because of shift work it was extremely hard to get off that stuff. Thanks a lot. Also on another note I watched your video on Thyroid. I have been diagnosed with HYPO-thyroid and was on synthroid for about 18 months, with little to no effect. When I watched your video, Your wife said she took Amour and it was a natural thyroid made of pig thyroid. I had my doctor switch me about a month ago. My levels have come down and I feel much better. Thank you

Patterson CURSE Yes ... mine is for neurological issues, spinal problems and Fibromyalgia.... was in different Codeine meds for years .... been on this Amitriptyline now for 2 years.... 😢
Patterson CURSE (10 months ago)
Keto Lady UK I've been prescribed that (again)for nerve issues including chronic bad headaches for a month, sinus and scalp tingling. I also have multiple spine bone spurs, bulging discs and osteoarthritis in various parts of my spine . Had a head and spine mri . Brain had some small foci hyperintensty flairs that were non specific. (Terrified it could be ms but dr says not) Mri confirmed what the ct did re my spine.. Anyway... I am totally overhauling my diet and life to combat the issues I have. My diet has bern abysmal snd noneonder I am having issues . I do not want to go back on those types of meds again. Im am very wary of them.

Thank you for this list. I have been taking Benadryl for quite a while (years) to help me sleep. The one I have been using is Sleep Aid from Costco. It works wonderfully but no more for me. My husband never takes anything except his antidepressant and meds for a heart rhythm issue. He is having serious problems with memory. We are both 77 years old.

I've been on the keto diet for about 6 weeks. Lost 15 lb and have 9 more to go to a good goal weight. I think keto has cured my fibromyalgia. At least the symptoms are gone. Now I'm going to taper off the Doxepin I've been taking for 15 years so I think that will be the key to whether or not fibro is really gone.

Another great video. I take none of these, but my Dr has me weaning off Clonazepan. I'm 64, and have been taking a small dose at bedtime for almost 15 years. Is this also a medication that will cause Dementia? Thanks !

Thanks, guys !

It is a type of medication that should not be stopped "cold turkey" - there are possible harmful side effects to doing that. Best to decrease dosage under your provider's guidance.

Mike Cushing yes it is. It is a benzodiazepine, all of which are linked to dementia. I highly recommend a good fish oil, Vit k2, and Alpha GPC pharmaceutical grade choline. All can be found on Amazon.

Thank you forgiving this list out it will be so very helpful for the people that I know they're on medications. And I can't believe anybody would do a thumbs down here well obviously maybe they're already demented

Just finished your book. WOW! Even at 70 years old I learned so much. Cannot wait for your next one. I do not have a thyroid gland and have suffered at the hands of well meaning military doctors for years. After reading your book I feel more I powered

Omg I just found this vid. I saw my doc last week and she reluctantly gave me a small script for alprazolam. She advised that this drug can cause dementia, esp in older people. I said to myself, ok, she's just saying that to cover her butt.....but I need it sometimes (death of child will do that). Your video just added to the truth, which I honestly hate... Thank you so much. I want to post this to my FB, but I don't want my comment to show, so I'll delete my comment and post your video later this week. I have so much more admiration for you after this information.

If you could post any safe alternatives for anxiety, sleeplessness that would be great.

The question should be what mineral deletes dementia? Horse tail, or silica. Drink Fiji water.

Yikes! Every Spring, I've been taking OTC chlorpheniramine maleate 4 mg to fight off the tree pollen etc.. Sometimes, I take two a day.. Since I'm 72 and becoming very forgetful, maybe I should forget about taking chlorpheniramine maleate 4 mg pills for a while.?.

I read that benzodiazepines also increase your risk. I used to take Klonopin PRN and have stopped since reading that.

Yay!! Your book, Lies My Doctor Told Me, arrived on Friday! I couldn’t put it down... it is refreshing to read a book written by a doctor who really cares if the average person walks away understanding what he has to say. I feel like I have more usable information about my own conditions and how I can help myself and others. ❤️👍🏾👍🏾
