- Drug-induced parkinsonism, akathisia and acute dystonia;
- Parkinson disease; and
- Idiopathic or secondary dystonia.
Benztropine is also sometimes used for the treatment of dystonia, a rare disorder that causes abnormal muscle contraction, resulting in twisting postures of limbs, trunk, or face.
These are principally anticholinergic:
- Dry mouth
- Blurred vision
- Cognitive changes
- Urinary retention
- Psychosis (usually in overdose)
Some studies suggest that use of anticholinergics increases the risk of tardive dyskinesia, a long-term side effect of antipsychotics. Other studies have found no association between anticholinergic exposure and risk of developing tardive dyskinesia.
