For example: one morning my neighbor asked me to turn off her sprinkler in the PM. When I left my house in the PM I drove right by her house, and found myself glued to looking at her place! I slowed down and asked myself, "Why am I staring at her house??" But nothing came to mind, and I drove on by. Later she called & asked why I hadn't done what I'd said I'd do?? I just heard for the 1st time that Lithium can cause memory problems. I take Lithium, 300mg 2x/day (for about 20 years), and Effexor XR 75 mg. (for about 10 years)
Yes, confusion and memory loss are known side effects of lithium, but I don't know what can be done to improve these side effects, apart from coming off the medication. If the side effect is bothersome and affecting your lifestyle then please see discuss this with your doctor.
