Re: does taking meds make u forget things?
Some antipsychotic meds can have a sedative effect, which is great if you want to get rid of those jittery, antsy shaking-the-foot feelings. But the sedation tends to affect my memory, also, just because being so sleepy means I am not paying attention as well as I might otherwise. But most of the time, I find when I am not able to pay attention or my thoughts are "derailing" and I am maybe slightly confused and unfocused and even repeating myself, it is because I am not taking the right kind of medication or enough of what I am taking. Not because the med is causing loss of memory.
And unfortunately, it may be that after you are on a med that really does you some good and clears up your thinking, you may forget what you were like off the med and stop taking it. But in my own case, that is just normal human desire to deny a reality that you don't like.
