I also I couldn't 'find the right words' when I was speaking, felt like an idiot. These are pretty common side effects with SSRI's I think.
Hmm, I do get depressive episodes from time to time, which can be debilitating, but I started taking it mostly for anxiety, mostly social anxiety, and I have noticed that I ALSO can't think of the words to say. It's so embarrassing!
That just seems to make my social anxiety worse!
Lol, I guess you can't win either way!
