Abstract

We examined the effects of anticholinergic medication on memory function in 113 patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD). Subjects were divided into three disease duration groups: early, middle, and advanced. The battery consisted of three tasks assessing memory of logical discourse, semantically related words, and figural material. We found no evidence of anticholinergic-induced memory dysfunction in any of the three groups. Analysis of covariance indicated that age was not a significant variable; however, dementia may have influenced the relationship between anticholinergic medication and memory scores. Our results indicate that anticholinergic medication does not uniformly compromise memory function in PD patients.
