I've been on Sertraline since about September 2020 and have increased my dose to 100mg since January 2021. I feel as though they have settled, and I'm happy with this medication, but I wondered if anyone had experience of memory being affected, not necessarily straight away but later (this is 6 months later)? I find that I can't recall things, sometimes at all - a bit like when you're panicking and trying to think about something but it's like your brain is a stuck record that keeps skipping - but without the panic...it's disconcerting but I am trying not to panic about it as I know that lockdown has effected us in ways and my vivid dreams and fake memories have started to get manageable. I know that it would make sense to speak with the GP about it, but if anyone else has experience or has information from their own experience that may help reassure as I know it's under a year since I have been on them. I have also started CBT which has been tough so perhaps it's a way of protecting my brain...I don't know. Any thoughts would be great, obviously not as medical professionals but as people.
