🧠 5 Popular Drugs That Cause Memory Loss & May Lead To Alzheimer’s

One of the unfortunate problems of getting older is less energy – both physical and mental. This is for a variety of reasons and at the end of this video, I’ll give you natural solutions for improving your energy levels for both your BODY and MIND.

However, what’s interesting is that the same reasons that cause fatigue for your body and mind, can also cause memory loss, cognitive problems and may lead to dementia and Alzheimer’s.

And even though this is a part of aging, many people are experiencing these negatives at a much younger age.

And one reason is due to the drugs people take.

And I’m not even referring to weird, rarely used drugs – but some of the most popular drugs that you or someone you know may be using.

So today I’m going to quickly list the top 5 drugs that cause short AND long-term memory loss, cognitive problems and actually lead to dementia and Alzheimer’s

I will also give you natural alternatives as well, so make sure you watch to the end of this video.

Statin Cholesterol Lowering Drugs
For almost 2 decades now it’s been known that cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, such as Lipitor (Atorvastatin), Crestor (Rosuvastatin), Zocor (Simvastatin) and similar statins cause memory loss and cognitive problems.

In fact, this is what I personally discovered with my own parents in 1998 and why I found natural alternatives to these toxic drugs for them.

And over the years, it’s been proven more and more that these problems are the RULE and not the “exception”. In fact, researchers3 have now realized well over 80% of statin drug users, experience memory problems.

Sadly, these are one of the most prescribed drugs on the planet. At the end of this video, I’ll give you natural alternatives to these drugs – the exact formula my own parents use.
As much as 20% of the adult population use anti-depressants1, which is a depressing situation.

In fact, in the past decade, the use of anti-depressants has increased by over 64%.

According to a Harvard study2, anti-depressants can cause memory loss. The worst one being Paxil (paroxetine).

However, problems can also be seen with others such as fluoxetine (Prozac) or sertraline (Zoloft), or a different type of antidepressants such as duloxetine (Cymbalta) or venlafaxine (Effexor)

Anti-Anxiety Drugs
Depression and anxiety typically go together. And anti-anxiety drugs, such as Benzodiazepines, cause what is called anterograde amnesia — which is the inability to form memories from events going forward in time.

The most popular “benzo” drugs being
alprazolam (Xanax)
diazepam (Valium)
lorazepam (Ativan)
temazepam (Restoril)
clonazepam (Klonopin)
chlordiazepoxide (Librium)
triazolam (Halcion)

Again, I’ll give you natural alternatives to reduce anxiety at the end of this video.

Cold Medicines
In a Harvard study2, cold or allergy medications also cause memory loss. This would also include antihistamines (brompheniramine, chlorpheniramine and diphenhydramine)

Some well-known OTC would be
Midol PM® or Tylenol PM® (containing Acetaminophen, Diphenhydramine)
Motrin PM® or Advil PM® (containing Diphenhydramine, Ibuprofen)
PediaCare Children’s Allergy and Cold® (containing Diphenhydramine, Phenylephrine)
Robitussin Night Time Cough and Cold® (containing Diphenhydramine, Phenylephrine)

Sadly, I had taken some of these drugs many years ago… I thought that since it’s OTC, it’s probably safe, but they aren’t.

A drug is a drug – no matter how you take it or where you get it.

Heart Burn / Antacids
Another type of popular category of drugs that cause memory problems is heartburn and antiacids. The worst being cimetidine (Tagamet).

However, the problem is also seen to a lesser extent with other similar drugs such as lansoprazole (Prevacid), omeprazole (Prilosec), or esomeprazole (Nexium)

I know a lot of people who take these drugs. I would rather they improved their diet, but some people would rather just take a pill.
