I've been on Buspar (15MG twice a day) for almost 4 weeks now. The past couple of weeks I have noticed that my memory, especially short term, has become much much more foggy. For example, this has caused me to miss doses because I cannot remember if I took the drug or not. I had a very sharp memory and could recall things in great detail before starting Buspar. Now it feels like I can't remember things that happened five minutes ago. I'm going to my follow up with my doctor in a couple of days and will defiently tell him about this. Has anyone had similar experiences? I have heard that memory problems is a side effect of buspar and is one of the main reasons people come off of it.
Can Buspar cause memory problems?

I am only 20 years old
i have been taking buspar for about a month and a half, and i am experiencing this memory problem. except, i am finding it hard to remember anything. i cannot remember things from last year or last week. i will be in the middle of speaking and suddenly just stop because i do not remember what i was talking about. in addition to the memory problems ive been experiencing mass amounts of depersonalization, dream hallucinations, uncontrolled body movements, irrational anger and increased anxiety. it does make me feel extremely awake and energetic though.
USER1524; yES MAKE SURE YOU TALK TO THE DOCTOR ABOUT THE MEMORIE PROBLEMS THIS IS OR CAN BE A PROBLEM BUT IT COULD BE JUST AN ADJUSTMENT IN DOSE BUT PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU POINT THIS OUT TO THE DOCTOR. HERE IS WHAT I FOUND UNDER Buspar dose so see what the doctor says. (((( reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue; unusual hoarseness); abnormal muscle movements; chest pain; fainting; fever; irregular heartbeat; loss of coordination;___ memory problems; new or worsening mental, mood, or personality changes (eg, anger, hostility, confusion, depression); seizures; suicidal thoughts or actions; unusual restlessness; vision changes. there it is.
