Brief Answer:
Depends on how long you used it!

Detailed Answer:
Him

If used for long periods, you could become addicted and dependent on it. However, no study supports the fact that it can cause memory problems at this time. My advise is always to use it as necessary and stop as soon as it becomes necessary to do so as to to avoid prolonged intake with risk of dependence and addiction.

I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me on this.
