Question: memory lapses, psychiatric hx

 charlie82 - Wed Apr 29, 2009 11:32 am

I have been expericencing memory problems. It's not the common thing like names or something like that. I have driven to places that i have been many times before and then forgot how to get there and then had to call someone to get directions and have also had conversations with people and never remembered talking to them until days later. I have even denied talking to them when asked if i did because i didn't remember. I'm only 27. My grandmother went through the same thing years ago. I'm on pristiq, depakote, clonzapam for my psych problems. I also have been haveing some right sided weakness muscle pain and tension since this has all started. I also have a big sensitivity to alot of different drugs.
