Lipitor Thief of Memory|
by Duane Graveline (Author), Jay S. Cohen (Foreword), Kilmer S. McCully (Introduction)
When Dr. Duane Graveline, former astronaut, aerospace medical research
scientist, flight surgeon, and family doctor is given Lipitor to lower his
cholesterol, he temporarily loses his short-term memory. Urged a year later to
resume the drug at half dose, he lost both short-term and retrograde memory and
was finally diagnosed in a hospital ER as having transient global amnesia (TGA).
This is the "scary, appealingly written" account of his search for answers that
his medical community didn't have -- the how and why of his traumatic
experience, and what needs to be done to prevent the devastating side effects to
body and mind from the escalating use of the statin drugs.
