Administration Of Trihexyphenidil For Elderly 65 Years With A History Of Hypertension?
is trihex safe for the elderly aged 69 and have a history of hypertension?
Hello Mrs. Chania! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The trihek drug that you mean is probably Triheksifenidil. Trihexyphenidil is a drug commonly used to treat symptoms of Parkinson's or in the case of mothers, it may be used to treat the side effects of other drugs. Trihexyphenidyl improves muscle control and reduces muscle rigidity. In elderly patients over 65 years of age and hypertensive, the dosage of Trihexyphenidil should be adjusted accordingly and should always be under the supervision of a doctor. If Triheksifenidil is indeed prescribed by a doctor, the drug administration is usually adjusted and safe. If the patient complains of blurred vision, excessive restlessness, difficulty sleeping, feels dizzy spinning, or experiences a sensation like floating after taking the drug, consult a doctor. Immediately stop treatment if the patient experiences tightness, rash, itching, or swelling of the mouth and face. Store the medicine in a dry and cool place. Stay away from drugs from children.
So much information from me. Hopefully can help.
