I don't remember.


Yes. Cogentin (benztropine) is a heavy-duty anticholinergic drug. Much of the brain's memory function depends on the neurotranmitter acetylcholine. Blocking its receptors can affect people's memory adversely.

Take into consideration that depression itself can produce memory impairments that are horrendous. It does mine. That is no joke.

How long do you plan to be on Cogentin?
