I have never had an IQ test, but I have been wishing I had so I could measure if there is any cognitive impairment as a result of depression and/or meds over time. Oh well. Too late now. One cognitive limitation I experience on effexor, as the dose gets higher, is word retrieval problems. I'll be in mid-sentence and suddenly the word that was about to make its entrance is gone, poof. And I know it is a word I have use zillions of times before, and I can almost get it, but it is lost. AARRGGHH!!!!! Frustration exemplified. At work it makes me feel STUPID and I get flustered by it and then lose my train of thought. I am trying to teach myself to LET GO and approximate my semantic intention, so I don't get all flustered and lost in the middle of talking.
