Dry mouth, constipation and blurred vision may occur. This is more frequent in the elderly but reduces with tolerance. Psychiatric symptoms such as agitation, confusion, hallucinations, euphoria, insomnia, restlessness and very occasionally paranoid delusions have been reported. These are more likely to occur in patients receiving higher than recommended doses. There have been reports of abuse of benzhexol due to its euphoric and hallucinogenic properties.
