Hi goconnor, In my opinion, yes it can cause cognitive problems. I can only go by my experience with it. I was on prescribed Oxy for almost 10 years, and I cannot remember the last five years of my life. I flushed those li'l devils down the toilet, and now have my memory and my life back.
Best wishes to you,
Oh Lord, Yes Yes and what did I just write? Ive been on hydro first three years and oxy recently last 2 years. For me its short term memory. If I stop a day or two then I can hardly get out of bed but I remember better.. So Its a balance on how much you want to remember to how much pain you can take. Took all the shots and 3 months later it hurts just like it did before the shots. I hate needles! That steriod stuff is not good in too many doses can cause deterioation in joints etc. It seems that the only real good is padding the Drs wallet. Guess I better take my meds so I can forget I wrote this. :)
Good luck to you goconner
