My mother has apparently been a victim of drug side effects. She was on cholesterol-lowering meds for years, and now I find out they are responsible for her memory loss. I just wonder how many are going through what we are going through with parents that have memory problems, and I wonder how many might possibly improve at least a little if they were to stop those meds. I sincerely urge any of you that are either on statins yourselves or have parents that are on them to check out spacedoc.com and get educated about what these drugs can to do your brain. It is sickening to realize that the medical profession continues to push this stuff onto an unsuspecting population. Mom is in the Alzheimer's unit in a care center because of this stuff, and now I find out that statins are also to blame for the muscle damage she sustained that now has her wheelchair bound.
