I'm new to the forum but wanted to see and hear for myself whether other folks are experiencing similar problems. I'm approaching 50 years of age and for the last 10 years or so have been taking Simvastatin 40mg and Atenenol 50mg together with 2x300mg of Allopurinol each day. Initially I had been feeling fine with my medication (other than som minor aches and pains) however over the past year or two I have noticed that the aches are getting worse but more importantly I seem to be suffering with memory loss. I can recall events as a child and my early adulthood leading up to my 30's and 40's. What I'm talking about now is not being able to remember something which may have happended 1 or 2 days ago, or indeed 1 or 2 hours ago. This is becoming embarrassing as I need to have a good memory for my job. I'm wondering whether the medication can be affecting my memory loss or is it simply down to the onset of early dementia? Anyone suffering similarly. Is there an alternative to the medications.
