Why am I not surprised? A study has shown that two classes of drugs often given, in tandem, to people with dementia - a population that also tends to have problems with incontinence - are together causing more rapid functional decline.
In " Dual Treatment of Incontinence and Dementia Associated with Functional Decline ," a study from researchers at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, shows that "The two drugs are pharmacological opposites, which led us to hypothesize that the simultaneous treatment of dementia and incontinence could lead to reduced effectiveness of one or both drugs."
The study also says evidence shows "more rapid decline among residents taking both types of drugs represents a significant public health problem because an estimated 33 percent of people with dementia also take a drug for incontinence."
