Will Strattera improve episodic memory?

Posted by River1924 on February 9, 2003, at 23:03:16

I currently take Concerta for fatigue and depression (with other meds.) I have trouble remembering events in my own life...occasionally a drug (such as pemoline and dexedrine spansules)has helped with this but not for long. Has anyone's memory improved on Strattera?

Hi,

I am a 50yr old male with ADD and have been on Strattera for about a week and a half. I currently take 60mg/day once in the AM. I don't have memory loss, but once events go into my memory, I have no temporal distinction between them. Something that happened two day ago seems the same as something that happened two weeks ago, or two years ago. It is all one big lump that I call "the past". Strattera has greatly helped me with this. Since I've been on it, I seem to be able to put past events into some sort of more realistic timeframe and can now sort through memories with recent past being different from more distant past.

I don't know if this is relevant or helpful to your situation, but I share it for what it's worth. Good luck with your memory issues.

Cheers,
HADD Enough
