Anticholinergics for Cerebral Palsy
How Well It Works
These medicines are primarily used to treat symptoms of Parkinson's disease and have not been well studied as treatment for cerebral palsy. Although initially they help improve muscular problems in some people, the gains often are temporary. Over time, the medicine may lose its effectiveness. The baclofen (antispasmodic) pump may work better for people with dystonic cerebral palsy.
