If you take one of these drugs
Dr. Gleason suggests having a thorough discussion with your doctor to review the potential benefits and harms of these medications—and all the others you take. If a drug appears problematic, the two of you can explore alternatives by considering the reason it was prescribed and seeing if there is a different type of drug that can be used as a replacement.
Don’t stop taking the drugs on your own. It isn’t safe to quit most benzodiazepines and anticholinergic drugs “cold turkey.” Work with your clinician to develop a plan for tapering off them.
