Memory difficulties

cracker Member Posts: 324 Pioneering
I have to take quite a bit of pain medication daily. I am noticing that I have memory lapses and want to apologize if I repeat myself or do not remember I have already received an answer to a question I asked for the second time.

Does anyone else have these memory lapses and some confusion at times  because of medication?

    Hi @cracker
    I think a few members will be able to understand this! Either through medication or brain fog, sometimes memory is an issue for a lot of people.

    If this is something new to you though, it may be worth getting it checked out with your GP :)

    Not new, has been happening ever since I started the medications. I take a narcotic and others with that side effect.

    That said, I am also 71, so some lapses are normal for my age (sigh).
