How to manage overactive bladder in elderly individuals with dementia? A combined use of donepezil, a central acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, and propiverine, a peripheral muscarine receptor antagonist

Although urinary incontinence inevitably occurs in advanced stages of dementia of any etiology, urinary urgency or frequency, also called an overactive bladder (OAB), occurs more commonly in dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) and vascular dementia than it does in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitors for dementia and anticholinergics for OAB have been widely used, […]

Anticholinergic drug use and risk for dementia: Target for dementia prevention

An increasing number of longitudinal cohort studies have identified a risk increase for dementia by the chronic use of drugs with anticholinergic properties. The respective data from the German Study on Aging, Cognition and Dementia in Primary Care Patients (AgeCoDe) also showing risk increase (hazard ratio = 2.081) are reported here. The mechanisms by which […]
