My mom has memory issues - has had for 20 years, progressively getting worse as it relates to short term memory. She's been on Simvastatin for less than a year, but has learned that it can cause these issues. Is there a cholesterol medication that doesn't cause or affect the aforementioned issues? She's fighting to regain or to slow her memory/cognitive disfunctions as much as she can.
Sorry, one more question: shouldn't it be okay to take such a medication as long as the cholesterol didn't get too low? I.E. maintain good LDL/HDL levels with medications should serve both causes - good cardiovascular health AND negating any worry about brain function, correct?
The studythat was shared wasn't this specific and this info would be helpful.View Thread
