Suffering from memory loss. Difficulty in remembering names. Need medication?

Hi, I was wondering if i can go for some medication which will improve/enhance my memory . From Last few years, i can feel and realize that my memory is getting worse over time. Please advice me what i should do ? I takes me long time to remember peoples name, any movie name and many more things. While talking about other people, in case i want to mention their name in conversation, i have to really stress my mind to get the names and similar things. Please advise Thanks in advance.

Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, you should undergo an evaluation by a neurologist to ascertain whether you have memory loss and also to assess the degree or severity of memory loss.

Secondly, we need to find out the underlying reasons for memory loss. It could range from simple stress & lack of concentration to vitamin B 12 deficiency, blood clots or infection of the brain. Your neurologist would be able to establish the cause of memory loss.

Lastly, medications would be required depending on the cause of your symptoms.

Best wishes,
