In the uk doctors very often prescribe procyclidine which is also an anticholinergic. In fact most folk here on APs get this med

You wanna talk about a scary side effect?

I take Farxiga for diabetes, a possible, but very rare side effect is called Fournier’s gangrene which eats away at human flesh, in particular the penis.

Basically my penis can rot away and fall off, Fournier’s gangrene can even kill me, lol

I’ve been on Farxiga for years now and so far so good.
