Today, I went to the doctor for a check up, having had a head injury a week ago and suffering some memory loss. Turns out, the medicine he gave me for my head has memory loss as a side effect. He then said "I told you. Don't you remember?" After I said no he said "I figured." and giggled. FML

I meant they can joke when off the job I mean what if a doctor told a patient that he had cancer and the patient ran before the doctor could tell him that it was a joke. The patient would probably be in a self-destructive mode. This is a huge comment.

Nurse to patient: Mr. Jones, I'm afraid you have cancer.
Doctor, stamping his foot: Darn it, I wanted to tell him!

I didn't write that one, Nunnally Johnson did.

I'd prefer my doctor jokes around with me, than be serious constantly. Doctors are human beings too. And I'm fairly certain that any medication that has the side effect of amnesia is only temporary.

So seeing as I'm on the Internet, I decided to google all the medications that list amnesia as a side effect. Here's the list: Statins which is for cholesterol control, Viagra(we all know what that's for), and some drug for Parkinson's disease. None of these are for head trauma. I think the doctor was completely joking about the amnesia side effect.


"Tylenol PM is not considered to be habit-forming, but it should only be taken in the manner described on the label and only for as long as suggested. The ingredients in this sleep aid make most individuals sleepy, but in some cases the opposite may occur. Rarely, you may experience nervousness or restlessness that will pass within four to six hours of taking the product. Dizziness, trouble concentrating, memory loss or blurred vision are less common side effects that are not considered serious if they cease after the medication leaves your body."

(500MG of acetaminophen)

No they really aren't. Unless docbastard tells me so. Amnesia is memory loss. What's the difference? Many, many medicines have memory loss as a side effect.

Viagra causes amnesia? What are the odds of taking some viagra then forgetting why the hell you're in some strange hotel room with a rock hard woody and a half naked babe.
(What do I do next????)

Iam_yummylicious - um, no. The sleep aid is the ingredient in Tylenol PM that causes those side effects, specifically diphenhydramine, aka Benadryl. Tylenol does not cause amnesia or memory loss.
