Dementia Risk for Seniors from Common Meds
As many International Hyperhidrosis Society members know, anticholinergics such as Robinul (glycopyrrolate) are medications that can be used to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). In fact, anticholinergics are often used to treat extreme sweating that affects multiple body parts or one large body area (such as the back) that isn’t easily treated otherwise. Anticholinergics block the action of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. In the brain, acetylcholine is involved in mediating learning and memory. In the rest of the body, it helps stimulate muscle contractions.
