In reply to effexor and memory loss, posted by notforyou on February 16, 2003, at 15:55:22

I would like to know that too, because I have experienced much the same thing. In fact, I was recently fired and for the 6 weeks before I was fired, I had been taking effexor and found myself to have an even worse memory than usual, in addition to sedation, lethargy and mental confusion. I love what it does for my anxiety, but it almost works too well...anxiety helps to inhibit behavior and I find that I just really don't feel much of any anxiety...even when appropriate. Am thinking about asking pdoc to augment with either Provigil or Adderall. Anybody have any experience with what I have described?

> I have been on effexor xr for almost three years now. I am noticing frequent memory loss. Like; did I eat lunch, did I say that, did I take my meds, did I turn that off. I don's have any other side effects, not ones that bother me anyway.
