#7450 Drugs and Dysphagia: The Good, the Bad, and the Sneaky
Drug treatment of swallowing disorders is common in clinical practice. Successful drug treatment of the disease or disorder often resolves the swallowing-related condition. However, many persons without dysphagia are treated for other conditions with drugs that make swallowing more challenging. Drug-induced dysphagia can be classified into one of three categories: dysphagia as an adverse-effect, dysphagia as a complication of therapeutic action, and medication-induced esophageal injury. Examples of medications in each category are provided based on therapeutic classification. This course will examine how prescription, over-the-counter, and herbal medications can cause, worsen, or assist in treatment of dysphagias.
