i started taking lexapro just over 2 weeks ago for depression/anxiety. i have noticed only a very slight change in my anxiety and depression but i am very concerned about my short term memory. SO FAR, my biggest problem is forgetting words. i'll be talking and all of a sudden i'll forget the next word i was gonna say. it takes me about 3-5 seconds to remember the word. i'm a 17 year old high school student with a 3.4 GPA (on 4.0 scale). i have never had this type of problem before. right now, i can deal with the problem. it only occurs a couple times a day but my biggest concern is that it might get worse and/or the damage would be irreversible. since i've only been on it 2 weeks, it hasn't reached it's full potential yet. also, i'm only taking 5mg but i'm supposed to go up to 10mg tonight. if i increase the dosage/keep taking the meds, will this problem just get more and more worse? also, will my short term memory get better after i go off the meds or will it be like this for the rest of my life? i really don't wanna screw myself up while i'm young. does anyone have any answers to the 2 questions i posed? any other advice?
