SSRI's do the same to me, and in fact even
L-tryptophan will do it. Right now I'm in
week 2 of Wellbutrin SR 100mg 2x/day, and
haven't noticed noticed any word finding
problems. FWIW.

If you do a search on Dr. Bob's "Psychopharmacology
Tips" for "word finding" (no quotes), there's a
discussion about this very thing. It seems fairly
common. One of the pdocs did some tests
that showed decreased performance on a specific
word-related task, compared to the person's
pre-Prozac performance. OTOH, on a different test,
the decrease diminished after a few months. So,
it's probably (IMHO) the med. Anyway, lots of
good info. there.

It just occured to me: maybe try gabapentin. I
can't quote studies, but I've had several people
say tell me has a memory *enhancing* effect for
them. Of course, YBMV.
