Title is self-explanatory -- the REM phase of sleep is when your brain does much of the data processing that helps preserve memory. Bendiaozopenes and Ambien both interfere with it. Well actually Stage 3 & 4 of sleep also are cognition friendly -- just wondering if anyone has any insight or info on what the most cognition friendly pharmaceutical might be.
And don't say Ambien or Klonopin. Tried them both years ago and both trashed my short term memory.
