Really, I have had short term memory loss for several years, it seems to get progressively worse. My brother & sister, not so much. I have learned about "statin brain" which is a side affect and it may be from that. Lately, I also saw research that another of my meds can cause "Osteoporosis," . I've been doing all I can ,I have osteopenia, trying to keep it from getter worse.
Statins can also raise blood sugar, which is something I have had for years, probably back from when I started Lipitor. With meds you just trade one problem for another.
osteoenia and memory problems can be caused by too much calcium in the blood. Check your numbers and see what the blood calcium level is. Sent me a pm if it has been over 10 for some time.
