Artane and cognitive issues/dementia?

Recommended Posts

Hello.

My partner was diagnosed 15 months ago and was taking azilect, Sifrol and recently levodopa/car. Due to an extreme drop in blood pressure upon standing, his movement disorder specialist is weaning him off the sifrol and has introduced artane.

The purpose my post is to learn more about artane because I have concerns about the possible risk for dementia? I read on this site that it's a risk to be considered. Can you provide some more information please. Thank you.

Usually we increase dose os SInemet or Madopar rather than using artane.  Artane can block receptors in the brain leading to confusion and memory issues though it can be a treatment for tremor.
