Effexor XR and Memory Loss


Updated June 04, 2014

"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

Do you agree with nomemory?  Can Effexor cause memory problems?  Have you had any issues with memory while using this medication?  Please tell us about your experiences below.
