  • Memory loss first identified Jan 2015. Returned to places I had visited in Sep 2014 and could not recognize names of restaurants, that I had been there in September, or the place itself, or the events that occurred. Multiple -- but isolated -- examples of this sort. Many other memories intact. Cardiologist ordered immediate cessation of Lisinopril. No specific lost memories recovered by April 2015. Significantly less notice of memory losses since discontinuance of Lisinopril.
