I wonder if because I am on so many different meds it may be one of the reasons my memory is fading away.? I have primary biliary cirrhosis{ PBC }that can make me forgetful and it does,but I wonder if some of it can be medications?

 Hi

I'm not a physician but I do have many concerns about the numbers of medications that older persons are on.  Please read this post about some research on the topic: http://cli.gs/u2HPMY

I have suggested to friends that they see a medcial provider who is NOT one of their current providers for an opinion on the med-mix they are taking.  You might want to consider doing this too.  It can't hurt - and it can help.
