Serious memory loss, need advice please

I'm diagnosed with schizophrenia and have been taking medication for it for about 4 years now. I've been having memory loss for the past few years and it's only gotten worse. It's getting very severe now. My long term memory is bad and my short term memory is even worse. I can't remember if I locked the door or not when i leave the house by the time I get to my car, so sometimes i go back and double check to see if I locked it. I forget what I say as I'm talking to someone in a conversation or when I'm arguing.

I don't see things and hardly hear things now. I was wondering if these medications I've been on this whole time have fried my brain? The medications took away my visual hallucinations. But could they have taken away my visual or image memory along with it? I never had memory problems before I was schizophrenic or began taking medications for it. So I don't know which of the two caused or is causing my memory loss. Is there any help for this?
