... alert or sharp mentally, and my memory seems to be really bad short term. Will this go away? Lisinopril did this to my husband, but it is only mentioned once as a possible side effect of Cozaar. Should I alert my dr.? The memory thing is getting worse, I'm forgetting where I put things seconds or minutes later. I can't seem to recall things I normally would, or connect simple ideas that require a little forethought. My energy level seems a little diminished also. Looks like I can still spell though. Help! I feel like this a little crazy.
