I've been in two accidents and don't remember a thing.
hello dennis26miless. Well, I was on xanax for years. It will sedate you, and make you less alert. A less common side effect, and its usually holds true for the elderly, seniors, is forgetfullness and also confusion. So, yes, to your answer. In my case, no. It never really did that. my dose was high in those days. I'd talk to your doctor. you don't want to end up in a situation where, you might say, how did I get here? or have a pause in your memory, blank out and find yourself saying what in the world is happening or going on? So, best advice I may give you, is talk to your doctor and becarefull when or if you have to drive. best to you, hope that you find that this ends quickly for you. there are other benzos besides xanax that will curb, cut down on your anxiety.
I have not remember watching movies having conversations ect. after taking xanax. Waking up in morning and not remembering nothing.
I know I just added an answer to this , but is not showing. I have taken Xanax since 1994, & it does not affect my memory. I have vasulitis in my brain that causes memory loss to some degree. Just my thoughts...
Yes I have memory loss on Xanax. This seems to be quite common with most of the Benzodiazapines.
Von1~I don't think age has anything to do with it!! lol gurl, I am 36 and forgetful as heck!!! That could be from Fibromyalgia fog, yet methinks tis the Xanax!
Best wishes dennis,
Do you take any other medications, even over the counter? what dose are you on and what length of time have you been on xanax? have you had any discussion with your doctor concerning this? We want the very best for you,
Dennis, how long have you been on xanax, and are you saying it has caused memory loss for you? I have been on xanax about a year, I do sometimes have some memory problems but just chalked it up to age (57). Please give share more info with me. Thanks, Von-1
