Memory Loss

Posted , 4 users are following.

I've been back on Rivaroxaban for just over a year now and have noticed my memory isn't what it used to be. I'm always forgetting things at work and need to write things down all the time. I forget to tell my husband things and we end up arguing cos I swear I've told him. Does anyone else have memory problems. It really is driving me mad as I've never had a problem before.

    You're probably preoccupied with your internal physical tubular networks, blood, respiratory, gastrointestinal, lymphatic and autonomic concerns having tentative fluctuating pulse, mindful stress's and blood pressure differentials between moments, wobbles and incidents, in tandem with glandular/hormonal pre&post cognition of own mortality/morbidity with or without emotional or appropriate support.

    I had many problems with Rivaroxaban, although with other things going on I am not sure if there was a memory problem as a result. Had to ask many times to get it changed but now on Apixaban which is 2 tablets spread through the day, so not the concentrated dose and I feel fine with it. Ask your Doctor and suggest alternative medicine.

    Like Supertractorman, I had problems with Riraroxiban. Not sure if memory was one of them, but as I was in a lot of pain, it probably wasn't my main concern. 

    I was switched to warfarin immediately and the problems I was having went away.

    Good luck


    p.s. I have no idea who my MP is rolleyes

    Hi Sam!

    ​Boy, can I relate to this and as I reading the posts and saw the name of your med, Rivaroxabin, my first thought was that I am having memory loss too and I am on Coumadin.  I had my bilateral pulmonary embolisms and a DVT in my groin. I had been treated for bronchitis but was not better and I had never so bad before. I did not have a great deal of chest pain but could not walk up the stairs in my house without having to sit. I have been in excellent health and a few years ago I did the Camino de Santiago, all 500 miles, at age 66 and only took one day off. I swam and life was good. But I began noticing that my energy was gone and also ,right before my PTs were discovered, I could not think straight. I am the church treasurer and my neighborhood treasurer but I had to give those up as I could not do the math. When my doctor had another xray done and saw that I did not have bronchitis,  she sent me to the hospital for a CT Scan which showed the clots. I was there 9 days. I did get better with my thinking but not as much as I thought.  At my age I would think it was dementia except I was not this way, at all, until I have my clots. And I was told by my doctors that the PEs kept the oxygenated blood from going all over my body so what would not be surprising that it did not go to my brain either.  I have been blaming it on the lack of oxygenated blood but I am wondering if it could be my Coumadin. It has been lately that it got worse. I do not have any dementia in my family at all and as this came on me suddenly I have to think it is connected to the PEs.  Any one else?
