Commonly prescribed anticholinergic drugs linked to dementia risk
June 24 (UPI) -- A widely used group of drugs -- anticholinergics -- used for everything from depression to allergies and gastrointestinal conditions to Parkinson's disease, may increase risk for dementia, a new study says. People over age 55 who used strong anticholinergic medication each day for more than three years had a 50 percent increased risk of developing dementia, according to findings published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine. "This study provides further evidence that doctors should be careful when prescribing certain drugs that have anticholinergic properties," Tom Dening, who...

They Thought This HIV Strategy Couldn't Work. But It Did
In high-income countries like the U.S., the standard of care for people infected with HIV is to provide antiretroviral pills when the virus is found, even when there are no symptoms of AIDS. The strategy staves off the disease and has a second — big — benefit. It has been shown to prevent the spread of HIV in sexual encounters. It's called "treatment as prevention" (TasP in medical jargon), or "test and treat." But in low-income countries, "test and treat" is not the typical approach to prevention. There has been no research to support it. So 10 years ago, researchers began planning a massi...

Medicalising everyday life doesn’t help anyone’s mental health
I have a growing sense of unease about the Americanisation of British society’s attitude towards mental health. In the 1980s, British audiences smiled bemusedly at neurosis-laden Woody Allen films and the normality with which American television and cinema treated notions of therapy, meds and interventions. To a British ear, the protagonists of these human melodramas could seem self-absorbed, foolish and narcissistic; figures of fun to be pitied for their inability to maintain a stiff upper lip and their ignorance of the power of a strong cup of tea. Yet now these are all concepts that have...
