My son and I both take this and believe it has caused memory problems.
In answer to your question I'd have to say a very solid yes!
I take Clonazepam because I suffer with Epilepsy, I was first diagnosed in 1984 and have been on it ever since. My memory is terrible, I really can't sugar coat this in any way whatsoever. Anything that happened minutes ago just disappear's, anything from taking directions to remembering names.
It can be very frustrating but you do learn to manage it in your own way.
I personally leave myself voice messages on my phone and listen to them at lunch time and then again when I get home from work. But I am only talking about my short term memory, my long term memories are absolutely crystal clear, almost photographic. It is a nasty drug but at the same time it does control my Epilepsy 100% , You haven't mentioned what your son and yourself take it for but I myself have to use it. If there is another option for you both I would recommend that you at least try it. Although Cleonazepam controls my seizures it does leave me constantly tired, unable to concentrate and very anxious. After all I've said, I deal with all the bad points because it does give me the freedom to live the life I do, and a life without seizures makes it worth it for me. Only you can weigh up pro's & con's for yourselves.
I hope this helps you, and I wish you the very best of luck.
