I have never noticed any memory loss on SSRIs. I do notice a reduction in motivation though, which can impact the ability to learn. Benzos can clearly affect memory. In fact, injectable benzodiazepines are used specifically to create amnesia during unpleasant medical procedures. A high IV dose of midazolam (Versed, Hypnovel) or diazepam (Diazemuls) can cause total amnesia for ~ 15 minutes after the injection. This is useful if a patient is having an endoscopy, for example.
