Seroxat Damages The Elderly

So Seroxat causes birth defects and damages babies born to mothers prescribed it, it’s banned for those under 18 because the clinical trials show that it increases suicide and self harm in kids. Young adults (under 23) are also supposed to be monitored for suicidal ideation as it’s known to trigger suicide in this age group, many people can’t come off it because of severe withdrawals, and now they say it damages the elderly, however anyone over 23 and before old age is fine to take it? … do they really expect us to believe that?

Up to half of the UK’s elderly population are prescribed at least one medication with anti-cholinergic properties, which include antidepressants, antihistamines, sleeping pills and antipsychotics.

Those with more severe effects include the antidepressant Seroxat, a drug for an overactive bladder called oxybutynin and schizophrenia drug clozapine.

As a result the drugs may trigger side-effects including dizziness, sedation, confusion, delirium, constipation and blurred vision, which although uncomfortable for young users may aggravate existing health problems in the elderly.

A number of studies found the drugs were linked to a deterioration in physical function, while others showed a ‘negative effect’ on cognitive function.
