I have been experiencing short term memory problems and other cognitive difficulties since being on SSRI meds for about nine years (can't think of words I commonly use in my vocabulary, lose track of what I am trying to say from moment to moment, forget names, etc.) I have experienced this phenomenon on each of the SSRI s I have been rxd after about six months to a year of use. I am currently on Luvox. Have been on effexor,zoloft,prozac... Initially, these drugs work for me but eventually I end up worse off then before. When I've tried to discuss my memory problems with doctors or psychiatrists, I get a blank stare. Surely, there must be something in the literature about this? Am I the only one experiencing memory loss and cognitive disfunction. Only way I can describe it is a "dumbing down" of my cognitive abilities. Additionally, it's an on again off again experience. Sometimes I'm clear with normal memory funciton and then it's gone and I am foggy again. Would like to get off SSRIs altogether but I'd like to discuss this with a professional who is knowledgeble about alternatives and side effects.
