Simvastatin Memory Impairment Causes and Reviews


Every day, you have different experiences and you learn new things. Your brain cannot store all of that information, so it has to decide what is worth remembering. Memory is the process of storing and then remembering this information. There are different types of memory. Short-term memory stores information for a few seconds or minutes. Long-term memory stores it for a longer period of time.

Memory doesn't always work perfectly. As you grow older, it may take longer to remember things.

It's normal to forget things once in awhile. We've all forgotten a name, where we put our keys, or if we locked the front door. If you are a senior who forget things more often than others your age, you may have mild cognitive impairment. Forgetting how to use your phone or find your way home may be signs of a more serious problem, such as

  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Other types of dementia
  • Stroke
  • Depression
  • Head injuries
  • Blood clots or tumors in the brain
  • Kidney, liver, or thyroid problems
  • Reactions to certain medicines

If you're worried about your forgetfulness, see your health care provider.

Simvastatin Memory Impairment Reviews

Wed, 29 Sep 2010

I've been on a Simvastatin for 6 months. I broke out in a mysterious rash about a few weeks after I began it. I've had a rash ever since. 2 dermatologist and 1 allergist later, it is the opinion of 1 dermatologist and the allergist that my rash is resulting from the Simvastatin. My heart dr. has never seen anyone get a rash from a Simvastatin, but he is going to work with me. He wants me to be off of everything I take (vitamins also) for 6 weeks. If the rash disappears, we will begin to introduce each pill 1 week at a time. I itch everywhere. The rash is terrible. My dermatologist has me on Doxepin at night, an antihistimine in the day, and cortizone mousse. I still itch. I can't seem to find others that have experienced a rash from a Simvastatin. Please reply if you can sympathize.

I have been in Zorcor for a good 6 years with no problems (40mg). I did not have any problems until recently. I now have a number of strange complaintes. I thought it may just be part of getting older. I am having joint and muscle pain and extreme headaches that absolutely debiliatate
me. I have a rash and my throat swells at times.Until reading some of your comments, I never suspected it could be from the same med. The swellinng in the throat was the final straw. I am officially off the med. as of today, with an immediate doctor visit in the works.

Thu, 24 Feb 2011

Have been on Zocor for almost 10 years with no problems but 6 months ago started getting rash on my left side which seems to be less annoying with good skin lotion. I also take some vitamin pills that have 1000% niacin(for building good HDL) and Niacin is known to create rash in many people along with other side effects that are similar to Zocor. If you are taking niacine as well as Zocor I believe the combination may be the cause as I have tried stopping either and the rash dimenishes, ythough does not disappear. The reduction of fats in your blood may just be giving you abnormally dry skin resulting in the rash as it seems ceaseing either pill reduces my rash to the area around a very small mole.
