Hi to everyone....newbie here. Can anyone please tell me if erratic memory loss is a side effect of Simvastatin? I have heard memory loss is common amongst people taking statins but it does not mention this on the Simvastatin leaflet. My memory is constantly terribly erratic, hit and miss, just as though all the details from my life are stored there in my memory but sometimes i can access them and sometimes i cannot. Just like when you see someone in the street who you have not seen for years and you recognise them and you know you know them but you just cannot remember their name. I can sometimes remember things from many years ago but forget current things within 2 minutes. I am in my mid fifties and not senile. Thank you.
