Certain meds can cause dehydration, other problems in hot weather, experts warn

AANP SmartBrief | Jun 23, 2015

A study in the Journal of Clinical Pharmacy and Therapeutics found that commonly used medications, including antidepressants, antipsychotics and diuretics, may elevate risk of heat-related illnesses and dehydration this time of year. Certain medications may lead to dehydration by way of cognitive impairment, decreased thirst recognition, low blood pressure, reduced cardiac output and more. Anticonvulsants, benzodiazepines and opioids may increase the likelihood of heat-related illnesses. Researchers recommend conducting a patient and medication review to identify possible thermoregulatory issues. PhysiciansBriefing.com (06/19)
