| | Pravachol and memory loss - Permanent?
I've just become aware that statins can cause memory loss and a bright light went off over my head. Hey, maybe that's why I'm having to write things down on the palm of my hand!
Seriously, I have been experiencing mild memory problems for some time, but just put the condition down to advancing age. But just recently, Dr Sanjay Gupta on CNN's morning show brought up the topic of statins and memory problems and I started investigating.
I have been taking 10 mg of Pravachol for over a year now. I understand that some physicians advocate a dose of 2 mg.
What has been the experience of people on this list that had there dose reduce by such an amoung? After reducing dosage, did your memory improve?
I think we need to ask pharma some direct questions about this topic.
