How do medications and drug interactions impact cognitive health?

Medications and drug interactions can significantly impact cognitive health. Some medications may cause cognitive side effects such as memory problems, confusion, or drowsiness.

Additionally, drug interactions can alter the effectiveness and safety of medications, potentially affecting cognitive function. A study in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society (2015) emphasizes the importance of careful medication management, especially in older adults, to minimize cognitive side effects and adverse drug interactions, which can have serious consequences for cognitive health.
