Thinking Clearly in Diapers or Drug-induced Alzheimer's

Click Here. Study links incontinence drugs with memory problems "It may be better to use diapers and be able to think clearly than the other way around." Just when I thought we would be past our Alzheimer's discussion I find that drugs for frequent urination may also contribute to cognitive decline...

Poor drug companies just can't catch a break.

"Nearly 80 percent of the study participants took one or more of a class of drugs called anticholinergics, including drugs for high blood pressure, asthma, Parkinson's disease and incontinence drugs such as Detrol and Ditropan."

If you treat one toxin proficiency disease as if it were a Ditropan deficiency, you will be certain to need at least three other drugs to combat the side effects of the first one. It may be bad medicine, but it's good business.

"...the frequency of events and the role of Detrol in their causation cannot be reliably determined," Ponni Subbiah, Pfizer's vice president of medical affairs said.

That's what you call PR speak for "we're screwed because another drug has been found to cause diseases and symptoms worse than the original condition it was FDA-approved to treat." When's the last time you had to take a leak?

"Gee, I can't remember, but I am taking Detrol just in case."

Frequent urination got you down (and up and down)? Homeopathic Cantharis, Berberis, Taraxacum, and Solidago are a good place to start. From a supplemental point of view, you might consider GTF Chromium and Sanhelios - Curbita Bladder Caps as well.
