DJ,
A dopamine enhancing drug may help.
A study was done a couple of years back where people were given a dopamine-like drug called bromocriptine. Bromcriptine can immprove higher level cognitive functions. In this study they found that bromocriptine could improve a personís short term memory as measured by a reading memory test in those that started with poor short term memory. However people with good short term memory actually performed worse on the reading memory test after taking bromocriptine. The study concluded that up to a certain point, dopamine improves short term memory but too much dopamine hinders it.
This isn't to suggest that you take bromocriptine. However you may benefit from a dopamine enhancing medicine. Ask your psych. which one may be appropriate. I found the dopamine active Wellbutrin, amineptine and amisulpride all to be effective.
