I had memory problems with paxil and now with xanax I find myself using post-it notes like their going out of style! If I don't write it down and hang it where I'll see it then I'll forget. My psych told me that's common with benzos. But, since it happened with the paxil I think any mind altering drug can cause memory problems. I started using ginkgo biloba 160mg time release capsules a few weeks ago and have actually noticed some improvement in my overall memory. I also play that brain age thing on Nintendo DS and my brain age is 26.....not bad for a 37 yr old :) It's frustrating to not recall things. I used to be able to remember everything. Talk to your doctor and maybe try the ginkgo.

Good luck!
