Drugs that Mimic Alzheimer's Disease
Did you know that there are over 100 drugs to treat Alzheimer's disease and the problem with most of them is that their side effects can mimic the disease it is treating. There are many drugs used to treat the disease that are prescribed for many other less serious issues, yet they can give one the mistaken belief they have the disease. The drugs are:
- Antihistimatines, like Benadryl
- Sleeping pills like Ambien, Sonata
- Painkillers like Darvon, Demerol, Aleve
- Anti-anxiety pills like Valium, Xanax
- Cholesterol drugs, such as Lipitor
- Acid reflux medication like Zantac
- Blood pressure, tranquilizer, heart drugs
If you suffer from a sort of memory loss and are taking one of the above medications, if you can, stop taking it to see if your memory improves. Otherwise, consult with your doctor about possible Alzheimer side effects.
