My husband has been taking lisinopril for one year now and it was increasingly affected his short term memory. He is 70 years old and before lisinopril his memory was excellent. We will talk to his doctor about a different medication as this is affecting his mood and his memory. Thank you everyone for posting your stories.

I am talking for my wife jane,jane has short term memory loss and upon doeing some reasearch i have found that lsnopril has the problem of memory loss and mood swings. i understand that taking the linopril out of her system will help.
to take the lisnopril out of her, i have read that neodialisis proceedure will eradicate the lisnopril in janes body.i talked to my local pharmest and he looked up another replacement witch is cozaar, i asked the pharmest to find one that does not cross the blood brain barrier and he came up with cozaar, at this writing im am about to aproach my dr. and see if he thinks it has some merrit i would like to hear from anyone with similer problems
