Frequently asked questions about benztropine

What is benztropine?

Benztropine is a prescription medication used to treat symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and muscle spasms caused by other medical conditions and medication. It is important to note that benztropine is not a “cure” or “treatment” for Parkinson’s disease itself. Instead, it helps reduce the difficulty with movement and involuntary muscle movement caused by the disease.

What is benztropine used to treat?

Benztropine is prescribed to treat symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and movement problems caused by other medical conditions and medications. While benztropine does not directly treat Parkinson’s disease, it helps reduce involuntary movement (tremors), movement difficulty, and balance problems caused by the condition.

Parkinson's disease is a disorder of the central nervous system that affects movement. Symptoms develop slowly over time and vary from person to person. In the early stages of the disease, patients may experience the loss of facial expression, as well as changes in handwriting and speech. Later symptoms frequently include tremors, slowness of movement, limb stiffness, and balance problems.

In addition to its use as a treatment for Parkinson’s disease, benztropine may be prescribed to prevent severe reactions to phenothiazine medication (such as Thorazine or Compazine).

How does benztropine work?

Benztropine belongs to a classification of medication known as anticholinergics. These drugs work by blocking the action of acetylcholine - a neurotransmitter that regulates several functions in the nervous system. By inhibiting acetylcholine, benztropine helps reduce involuntary muscle movement (tremors) and other problems caused by Parkinson’s disease and related medical conditions.

What are the common side effects of benztropine?

Benztropine has been shown to cause some side effects. If these adverse reactions do not go away within a few days, talk to your health care provider.

Common symptoms caused by taking benztropine include:
- Dry mouth
- Difficulty urinating
- Nausea/ vomiting
- Constipation
- Changes in appetite


This is not a complete list of adverse effects – though these are the most common. Seek medical attention right away if you experience symptoms such as changes in heartbeat, rash, difficulty breathing, fever, hallucinations, confusion, or vision changes.

As with all prescription medication, be sure to inform the prescribing doctor about any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with, as well as any medication/ supplements you are currently taking before starting treatment with benztropine. Benztropine can interact with other forms of medication and substances, causing potentially serious side effects. In addition, let your doctor know if you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant. If you become pregnant while taking benztropine, inform your health care provider immediately.

What is the typical starting dose of benztropine?

For adults, benztropine is administered as a 1-4 mg oral tablet to be taken once a day at bedtime. The exact dosage of the medication depends on the condition you are being treated for. This preliminary dosage may increase, depending on your needs and how well you tolerate the medication.

Do not discontinue or increase your dosage of benztropine without consulting your doctor first. Take the medication exactly as prescribed, and inform your doctor if you begin to experience any side effects while taking the medication.
