Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 month ago):
My Dad has been on Clopidogrel for a couple of years for blood thinning and since being on Duloxetine in December 2013 he has had another TIA in January and within 2 weeks of TIA he has severe memory loss and major speech impairment and is losing control of bodily functions. It seems since he started taking Duloxetine that his health has declined. He has high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol as well and is taking drugs for these.
From this study (1 month ago):
Concern with memory loss. Which drug should I stop to regain my memory.
From this study (2 months ago):
I think my memory's always been quite bad, but now that my condition is well under control and my thoughts less foggy than they used to be, I've started to wonder if my terrible short term memory has something to do with the medication I'm taking.
