My mother has been taking Detrol for 2 years. She has had some of the side effects - dry mouth, dizziness. In May 2008 she began taking Aricept. She has begun to sleep much more during the day and she has felt her memory becoming much weaker.She told me recently she was afraid of what was happening to her - tiredness, forgeting things much more quickly. After reading the result of the Wake Forst study regarding combination of Detrol and Aricept - perhaps she is experiencing adverse effects due to the cobination of these two drugs

Just read that Detrol DOES cause memory loss.
Do a google search and find articles entitled something like "better to wear diapers than lose memory".
Scary..all these new "wonder" meds are.
