Whats a small white pill with 832 bmi on it

Not Medical Advice: A white, oval-shape pill with 832 BM1 imprint has been identified as Benztropine mesylate 1 mg.

Benztropine belongs to the group of drugs called anticholinergic antiparkinson agents. It works by reducing the effects of certain chemicals in the body that may become unbalanced as a result of disease (such as Parkinson's), drug therapy, or other causes.

Benztropine is used to treat extrapyramidal reaction, hyperhidrosis, as well as symptoms of Parkinson's disease, such as muscle spasms, stiffness, tremors, sweating and drooling.

In medical news, a drug used to treat Parkinson's disease may provide an effective new therapy for multiple sclerosis (MS), research suggests. Early tests on mice show that benztropine stimulates the production of nerve-repairing cells.

Scientists hit on the drug after screening 100,000 compounds for their ability to trigger the development of cells that rebuild damaged myelin, the protective fatty sheath that surrounds nerve fibres. Find out more at The Guardian.
