Ulone/chlophedianol: Is an antitussive/cough suppressant. It has local anesthetic and antihistamine properties, and may have anticholinergic effects at higher doses.

Why do people with dementia have a greater risk of developing an adverse reaction to anticholinergics?
Acetylcholine: Anticholinergic medications block the effect of acetylcholine, a brain chemical that plays a key role in the process of remembering. Mental status changes associated with anticholinergics can range from mild cognitive impairment to delirium. Patients with alzheimer's disease and other dementias are especially sensitive due to already existing cholinergic abnormalities. ...Read more
Safe for a person who takes haldol (haloperidol) + anticholinergic / antihistamine do physical activity at the gym?
Yes: The short answer is yes. I might add, that taking alot of anticholinergic medication, i.e. Cogentin/benztropine or artane/trihexylphenadil-can decrease one's ability to perspire, or sweat. As sweating is the body's natural mechanism to cool off, a concern might be that a person could become overheated. Be sure and drink lots of water and be careful not to become overheated. See: hyperpyrexia. ...Read more

Is Bupropion anticholinergic or not? Research links those to possible risk of dementia. Mixed information about the classification though. Thanks.
Not to my knowledge: Or my research into it. The molecule actually resembles a number of the body's own neurotransmitters (epinephrine and norepinephrine) as well as several other drug classes called sympathomimetics (amphetamines, sufafed etc). It is not listed as having any anticholinergic activity. However, amphetamines and cocaine both can cause dopamine depletion and have been associated with parkinsonism. ...Read more
