What do doctors mean when they say that a patient has brain fog as a direct result of the many side effects of high blood pressure prescriptions?

In brief: Cognitive difficulty

Brain fog often refers to a mental "fog" in which cognition is not as clear or feels slow, mental confusion may occur, one is not feeling sharp mentally, can be forgetful, or feel detached.
If you or someone you know is experiencing these symptoms it is important to discuss with the prescribing provider to consider treatment options as well as be evaluated for other medical causes.
