Delirium is often unrecognized or misdiagnosed and is commonly mistaken for dementia, depression, mania, or an acute schizophrenic reaction, or part of old age, while early diagnosis and resolution of symptoms are correlated with the most favourable outcomes. Drug-induced delirium is a common matter in the elderly and previously we have reported that anticholinergic drugs, together with several drugs, may significantly contribute to the onset of delirium, however, the development of drug-drug interaction may be also involved in an increased risk of adverse drug reactions (ADRs). Delirium is severe confusion that develops quickly, and often fluctuates in intensity. It is characterized by fluctuating course, attentional deficits and generalized severe disorganization of behavior.
The goal of peer-review is to assess the quality of articles submitted for publication in a Scholarly Open Access Journals. The peer review process is highly appreciated by researchers globally.
