Hi HereNow,
This section is for Alzheimer's and dementia sufferers.
Are you are trying to control urinary incontinence with medication in an Alzheimer's patient?
It would depend on which drug was prescribed. For example, Ditropan is often used for urinary incontinence but can impair thinking (confusion). The same with Amitriptyline, a tricyclic anti-depressant that can make you confused, lightheaded, etc.
If the person is in mid to late stage dementia, I don't believe that it would be appropriate to use medication to control involuntary urination.

Could you give more info on the person? Did the doctor recommend it?
