At my young age, i've been very forgetful in many ways. Even a simple word to write, i forget it. Sometime, i have a new friend, then i meet him again, i already forget his name, ashamed to myself that i need to ask his name again..Is there medicine for this?Help me? Thanks in advance..

Dear cherri if you are really interested in improving your memory then I would suggest you to do Pranayama. The method of doing pranayama is available at this site www.divyayoga.com. You can visit and learn how to do pranayama at home itself. After one week of time you will see the result, believe me. Try it and then only comment later on ok.

you are quite young yet I am 64 and there is an excuse for me lol , I would think with you that it is simply a case of you having too much on your mind at the same time , I have heard of a health food called Genko Jehobah( sorry not sure how to spell it) and this is supposed to be very good , good luck xx

Sometimes I do that, too. However don't feel bad about that. I try to write their name down at a latter time and use their name in a conversation. Have a nice day. Pablo

I am not sure of medicine for forgetfulness...i think you just have to write down things and just keep telling yourself to remeber them with time maybe you wont be that forgetful! LOL i actually have amazing memory so i really dont know how to advise you on this....sorry :)

If there is a medicine for this then my husband definetly needs to take it because he is the most forgetful man I know. If I send him to the store for 1 or 2 things I have to write them down because he might forget it. I have to remind him things over and over. I forget too but not as much as him and his forgetfullness is quite annoying.

is this not normal? i mean, i have the same problem as you do. i have been so forgetful too mostly when it comes to the names of people i met just a few times... maybe there is no medicine but there are things we can do to increase our memory, maybe increase our food intake rich in nutrients, to increase memory.. thos stuffs.

I have trouble with my memory too. I actually take a medicine that one of the side effects is forgetfulness. I have heard that Omega 3 capsules can help some people.

ya me too sailing on the same boat.but i have a remedy for it,.at the end of each day, try recollectin the events that took place.i know, it is a bit difficult at the begining but it is a very good exercise for our brain. But am sure, if you try this out,as the days pass, you'll yourself find a change in your memory power

Don't worry too much about this. Sometimes you just have to develop coping stratagies such as making notes and lists to remind yourself of things to do. If you can't remember a name just say so and just say you have a bad memory, people won't mind and then you can feel more relaxed instead of talking to someone and all the time thinking of what is their name. My son is dyslexic and that is something that can affect the short term memory, amongst other things, which mearns things don't stay in your mind unless you can commit it to your long term memory. I was at Uni whith a girl with dyslexia and she had to tape evry class we did as she said as soon as the class was over she just forgot everything that had gone on. Only intelligent people have dyslexia so don't be ashamed as you share this problem with the most intelligent of people, you may even be dyslexic yuorself.
