Common Medications for PTSD Tied to Increased Dementia Risk
May 18, 2017
Psychotropic medications commonly used to treat posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are associated with increased risk for dementia in older veterans, new research shows.
"Patients diagnosed with PTSD using SSRIs [selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors], NA [novel antidepressants], or AA [atypical antipsychotics] were significantly more likely to be diagnosed with dementia compared to both those with and without a PTSD diagnosis but without any identified psychotropic medication use at baseline," the authors, led by Francis Mawanda, PhD, University of Iowa, Iowa City, report.
The study was published in the May issue of the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.
