You are a strong woman. Thank you for sharing your positive attitude about your diagnosis.

I also have MCI (mild cognitive impairment). After testing my neurologist assured me that I do not have Alzheimer’s. Yet?
I was prescribed Clonazapam for a head tremor. I became dependent on this pharmaceutical..I did not know that it affects memory and mood!
I am now tapering off of Clon with the help of Escitalopram.
I am looking forward to meeting a (referral) psychiatrist who will counsel and manage the decrease in medication. 🙏 please

I did not know that Clonazapam could affect memory. I have been on it for yrs for anxiety but only in the last yr has my memory declined. I only take 0.5 mg daily.
I asked my PCP for a referral to a neurologist, she said I needed to go to a geriatrician for testing. Would. You agree . I’ve been waiting 2 weeks for them to call with an appointment.
