Taking Medications to Improve Memory What to Ask Your Doctor

Why am I taking this particular medication?

How does this medication work on my memory?

How much improvement can I reasonably expect?

What is the right dose to take?

Does it interfere with any other medicines I am taking?

What are the common side effects?

How long do I need to take it?

Is the medicine addictive in any way?

Can I drink alcohol while taking it?

Is there any risk in stopping it for a few days at a time?

Most studies of treatments for mild memory loss have evaluated people over a few months or at most a year or two. If there is a slight improvement in memory functioning, will this effect be maintained ten, twenty years down the road? Also, will continuous long-term usage result in medication side effects that we did not see in the short-term? Although we don't yet have the answers from long-term therapeutic trials, the research evidence from short-term to intermediate-term studies with a variety of medications is now sufficient to help build a sound program to prevent memory loss due to the aging process.
