Re: Statins and Memory Loss
JimmyD.....I'm assuming you're 57 years of age ...or am I making
Nevertheless, I'm 77, good health, non-smoker, 2 12oz beers a day, healthy diet, 6 feet tall (used to be 6'1 1/2", but my chiro told me that old dudes shrink!).
Veterans Administration Medical Center in Long Beach, California prescribed Simvastatin for me a number of years ago. I stopped taking same in August of last year. Started taking .05mg nightly after my last VA visit where cholesterol count was just a tad high at 210.
I've been experiencing sort of dizzy spells, but more like a balance problem for the past few days. I know dizzy, I had labyrinthitis years ago .....these "spells" are not like them.
Because of your post, I'm going to stop taking those puppies effective tonight and see what the results are. Don't think I'm going to croak from a heart attack in the meantime!
Thanks for your post. Thanks, again....you saved me a trip to the VA!
