Here's this week's Podcast Topic:

Many of us take prescription medicines, but most of us just follow the dosage on the label and don't read any of the materials that are included about that drug when we receive it from the pharmacy.

There are some interesting issues regarding a number of popular drugs that most of us aren't aware of, and we're rarely told of all the possible side effects. Two classes of drugs that come to mind are benzodiazepines and anticholinergics.

Join me for my podcast, "Common Drugs That May Impact Dementia" to hear about a new study about long-term use of benzodiazepines and the possible link to Alzheimer's disease. We've always known that benzodiazepines can affect memory and cognition but this could be a potential issue if additional research shows their initial results to be consistent and replicable.

The takeaway from this topic is simple. Know all the risks and side-effects before taking any drug. Trading one set of physical or mental problems for another, possibly more problematic issue makes the simple task of doing some research on the drugs you take well worth the time.
