Many: Anti- anxiety medications like benzodiazepines (xanax). Several medications are problems for elderly, antihistamines, medications for overactive bladder. "statins" for cholesterol have caused reversible memory loss so severe, doctors thought it was alzheimer's. Ask your doctor before stopping medications, esp. The cholesterol and anxiety medications. The memory loss is reversible.
