Abstract

Many of the currently available antidepressant drugs produce unwanted anticholinergic effects which range from minor effects such as blurred vision and dryness of the mouth to urinary retention and exacerbation of glaucoma. Anticholinergic effects may be particularly severe in middle-aged and elderly patients. In addition many of the peripheral symptoms associated with depression may be exacerbated by treatment with those antidepressants which have significant anticholinergic activity.
