From this study (5 months ago):
After adding ambiam and xanax I have become very forgetful when I used to remember everything
From this study (6 months ago):
For over two years I have had increasing trouble reason and understanding written and oral communications . My work has suffered and my bosses complain I forget assignments and ble others for problems. I had to resign a few months ago or be terminated . Until 2 years ago I had excellent reviews ad was told I was a 'star.' I have noticed my dyslexia has gotten worse. I can still type but I can no longer understand legal briefs that I have worked on for 25 years. Two doctors suspect Alzheimer's but because I can pass the 5 minute memory quiz, they won't treat me with medications that might help. I understand that people with advanced degrees and higher iQs are harder to test since we function at higher capacity. My dad had Alzheimer's. His Mother had early onset Alzheimer's. Also my Dad's mother's sister had early onset Alzheimer's.

No Red Yeast Rice as a choice? I take that too for cholesterol.
