I had memory problems with Simvastatin (generic for Zocor) also to the point that I forgot where I was while driving. My memory returned to normal within two weeks of stopping the Simvastatin. My Dr. explained that cholesterol does not cross the brain barrier. Therefore the brain makes its own cholesterol and that even though your blood cholesterol may be high, the level in your brain may be normal. The statin does cross the brain blood barrier and can lower cholesterol in the brain to a point that it is to low for the brain to function correctly.
