In brief: Not listed

The adverse events listed as associated with the bisphosphonates does not include memory problems.
But since memory problems can be associated with aging and the bisphosphonates are typically prescribed to elderly patients, it is most like the memory problems are due to aging rather than to the bisphosphonates. If memory problems are developing then they should be evaluated by pcp.
