Dear Ms Myammy,
My uncle Rudy used to be a robust, smart, fun-loving guy. He was once famous, however, something happened and his brain snapped.He says the silliest things- and a lot of times, he doesn’t make any sense. He can’t remember anything. Are there any magic pills?

Dear Nancy in New York,
So sorry to hear about this terrible dilemma with your uncle Rudy. Although there are a variety of “brain boosters” on the market most are lacking research to support their memory-enhancing claims. Keeping him away from microphones might be the panacea. Perhaps making him promise to stay away from speaking in public. Perhaps a dementia workup. Poor old guy.
