Are your medications affecting your memory?
Many of today’s most popular drugs can make you forgetful. They inhibit your brain’s chemical messengers. And this blocks your concentration, memory and ability to focus. More specifically, these drugs block the activity of a neurotransmitter in your brain called acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is directly involved in learning and memory. And blocking it is a risky business… I’ve seen confusion, memory loss, and declining mental skills in patients who take these drugs. New research confirms what I see in my own practice. One recent study found that people taking these kinds of drugs had shrunken ar...

Discussion Regurgitation is a passive expulsion of ingested material out of the mouth. It is a normal part of digestion for ruminants such as cows and camels. Nausea is an unpleasant abdominal perception that the person may describe as feeling ill to the stomach, or feeling like he/she is going to vomit. Anorexia is frequently observed. Nausea is usually associated with decreased stomach activity and motility in the small intestine. Parasympathetic activity may be increased causing pale skin, sweating, hypersalivation and possible vasovagal syndrome (hypotension and bradycardia). Retching or dry heaves is when there are sp...
