... memory loss? Ann D. I am an office manager,56 yrs old, and need to remember what i do, but I am finding that something i do one day, like give a file to a colleague, I forget completely about who I gave it to. I don't remember the sequence that took me to that stage. I used to be able to remember the sequences. Yesterday I could not concentrate on a specific task, a task I have done several times before, and follow it through.My brain felt scrambled. Does this happen to anyone else?
Hello Ann D. Time to talk to your doctor. These two side effects, memory loss and concentation are not normal to taking Cymbalta. You've been on the drug for almost five months now and this confirms what I just said. Not certain why you are taking it as its perscribed for a variety of diagnosis. The daily maintenance dose, is 60mg. Best of wishes to you, pledge
While I'm uncertain whether the cymbalta is the actual cause of your lack of concentration and memory loss, I can share that when I was taking cymbalta I discovered that Wellbutrin, another antidepressant, along with the cymbalta worked great. My concentration and memory increased. I would have a serious talk with your doctor about these symptoms and determine the best course of action.
