fact: there is no such medicine/supplement that doesn't have any side effects. anything you put in your mouth can affect you in anyways. if you are trying to memorize things, it will not work asap. remember, forgetting things is a part of aging, and there is nothing we can do about it, but we can adjust to it. most people lose memory differently from others. some even starts to forget things when theyr in their mid-wenties. however, depending on your stress level, your lifestyle, how you deal with your adls, etc. can affect your memory, if you have emotional problems, depending on how severe it is, could contribute to short term memory lost. when i use to study for my nclexrn, i used to memorize stuff, and it didn't work. it drove me nuts! i was working 40 hours a week at that time, so i was able to study only during my days off, and sometimes after a long day of working. i used this method where i used flashcards, frequently reading, and using familiarization, i refusedto memorize things. i think by repeating what i studied over and over again, did help me a lot. don't feel bad, you are not the only one who forget things..learn how to breathe, give time for yourself to rest, and have a break from studying...make an appointment with your other half, or in laws...." i need time to study for a couple of hours, can you watch the kids for me? ", if you can afford not to watch tv, do it. i know i talked to much here, but hopefully this will help. :-)

p.s. regarding food? stay away from too much caffeine, or salty stuff..drink a lot of liquids, eat right, get some rest, ( i am sure you know these stuff already).

Hi.. I'm 40... and when I was taking my review last April to June of this year, we were told by our lecturer to just take multiVitamins and Vit B complex...that is Medifortan in the morning ang Suppraneuron before bedtime, I think its effective, it worked for me though.... ;) I hope this would help too.

I can relate! I also started nursing school in my late 30's. I think that it is harder to learn new information and skills as you get older. I had trouble with the "mechanical" aspects-- starting an IV, remembering the order of the steps to do things, etc. Practice, practice, practice! I also made flashcards for anatomy, etc., and that helped a lot. I don't think there is any safe pill or supplement you can take. Just a lot of hard work. Good luck!

Hi again,

Thanks for all the replies and quotes you have posted....Maybe I really have to accept the fact that even though it really hurts...." it is part of getting old" (wahhhh....) Wish I have 1/8 of Sen. M. Santiago's brain......

I thought with our modern age, there could be something or ways already.....

Thanks again

Check out nootropics like Piracetam or Arcalion. Recent research validates their postive cognitive enhancing effects.Gingko is good and cheap but one has to be taking it long term for at least 3 mos to notice and effect. Both meds are available at ur local manila pharmacies

Closing this thread as the issues intened to be discussed by he thread starter seems to have been resolved and we do not want this thread to become a medical advice discussion board.

Thank you for understanding.
