Özet

Background: Anticholinergic drugs in elderly people have been associated with some serious side-effects. Patients in Turkey tend to attend primary care centers to have prescriptions of the drugs they chronically use. However, very little are known about how frequent that these drugs are prescribed and their side-effects in Turkish population. We aimed to investigate the usage and side-effects of drugs with anticholinergic properties in patients over 65 years of age attending to primary care centers.
