Does Simvastatin 40 mg cause memory loss and amnesia?.Thread

I am 79 years old and have been on 40 mg simvastatin for 2 or 3 years. Recently I have noticed problems with memory loss and have had.

Please go back to you doctor and inform him/ her that you're suffering these episodes, if like many doctors he doesn't believe it's the statins and refuses to accept it then please point them to the MHRA website where it clearly states that '' when prescribing Simvastatin it is important to inform patients of possible memory loss as a side effect'

Good luck and please keep us informed on how you get on.

You’re not alone, reach out to thousands of patients.

I took a statin for 10 days - never ever again! I couldn't walk more than 50 yards - using crutches.
