"I need to know if anyone has suffered from memory loss and attention problems while on or after starting Effexor XR. My Pharmacist (who is a close friend of mine) tells me there is no way the two can be related as far as he knows and my doctor tells me the same. I don't believe it. In the last four years of being on this med (I think its been that long, I don't remember when I started it) my memory has been going down hill and I'm not over the hill yet I'm only 33!"--nomemory
