I have been on both of these drugs for many years for insomina but have terrible short term memory problems now. Meaning while awake, I can't carry on conversations like I used to (forget words), read paragraphs but can't tell you much about what I have read, watch a movie but can't tell you what the movie was about two days later etc. Depending on many notes and computer to remember basic things at work. People look at me like I am stupid and the memory problems are effecting my job performance.
