zoloft and memory loss?

Has anyone experienced memory loss while taking Zoloft? I am currently on 150 mg and extremely forgetful and unable to focus. It's becoming very frustrating because Zoloft has worked quite well for me.

Hey JD,
Mental confusion can be caused by Zoloft and don't forget that depression and other mental illness can also cause it. Stick with it a whild longer. Make a list each day to remind you of things and use a calendar to post notes and such.
Luck and peace..

Re: zoloft and memory loss?

I'm only on 25 mg of zoloft because anything higher triggers migraine attacks and have been on it for 4 months. I definitely have been having memory problems. Just the simple things like frequently used vocabulary and I have quite a large vocabulary. I also will forget where I put some I just put away a few minutes ago. I'm only 23 years old too. It's getting annoying. I know that it's the zoloft causing this. Other people on another depression forum that I frequent quite often have reported this, so you're not alone. I didn't have such a problem until started taking zoloft. But then again when I was on Welbutrin a year and a half ago, I began to have trouble remembering simple words. It's like things will be on the tip of my brain, but I just can't seem to get it to recognise that it's there. I don't know what to do about it, but it's been happeing to me too.
