... I took my first does last night before bed, big mistake. It kept me up and I had racing thoughts and palpitations. Im also taking ativan while I wait for thr zoloft to kick in. I was taking xanax, but the ativan works better. Anyway, my question is does anyone experience memory loss, or better yet, forgetfulness. I was literally in the middle of a conversation (well trying to have a convo as I now have also gained a studder) and I literaly forgot what I wanted to say! I forget the names of things too, yesterday I wanted to ask my daughter if she used bleach to clean the bathroom, but I forgot the word "bleach". Anyone else have this happen?
