Discovered many routine ones cause these problems. Several meds: Oxybutin, Pepcid, plavix, all can cause thinking issues and other "dementia" symptoms especially in older people. So why do the doctors put seniors on these meds in the first place.
about 1 month after mom started oxybutin (because insurance would no longer pay for detrol LA) she actually had problems with paranoia and hallucinations...we did not realize the meds were causing this. And it took about 4 months to realize this. In the meantime we thought we had a much bigger problem.
The local hospital does not carry any acid reducers except pepcid which, according to mom's neurologist, can cause mental confusion. So doesn't the hospital realize this?
I know the forms you get with new scripts tell you all sorts of things but if there is a problem that tends to happen with this age group, shouldn't we know that? Isn't there a list or something?
