My husband is 56 years old and started taking Zocor about 1 1/2 years ago. Since that time, he has started having major problems with verbal communication (I think it's called aphasia). He says he knows what he wants to say, he just can't get it to come out of his mouth. He hasn't had any noticeable problems with his memory. The last time he went to his doctor, he asked him if his meds might be causing his problem (he is also taking Daypro for arthritis), and the doctor said no. Does anyone think the Zocor could cause this problem. I still think that's what it is, because the problem didn't start until after he started taking the Zocor.
