Beta blockers and memory loss?
I need to dig out my "side effects" data, but I thought I'd ask here; I'm just curious what others experiences are.
Has anyone experienced memory loss while taking a beta blocker? I've been on Metoprolol for a few years now, and I swear, my memory has been a bit dippy ever since. No real history of dementia in the family on either side!
My mother, who is 93, was recently placed on Atenolol, and I'm seeing some radical changes in her mental functioning and memory. Of course, at 93, it's hard to say, but she hasn't had significant problems before (she was previously on a calcium channel blocker for many years).
