I take Venlafaxine, Klonopin, Provigil, Levothyroxide. As needed I take Flonase, Tumeric, multivitamin and a cream for knee pain as I can’t take Ibuprofen due to stomach issues. I have not spoken to my doctor or husband about this, silly as it is I feel embarrassed about this. I don’t think any less of others who have this problem, but when it comes to me it’s different, in my mind. Maybe because I’ve always been very self reliant and don’t want to admit that maybe I need help. I also don’t want to worry others about it , and I don’t want it to be true.
Skylark.

Let me add that it has only been recently that possible anticholinergic properties of benzos has been suggested while they are not officially listed in that category – however, there is growing concern about their link to demential. Other commonly taken drugs drugs – like Benadryl – have long known to be potent anticholinergics.
