My Phych told me last week that she eventually wants me off from these meds in the next month or so, which scared me, but she told me some alarming information also. That these 2 medications in the same grouping have been tested and they cause people to forget things, and mess with their memory, also they said that taking them make you not able to learn any new information. And you body is always learning something new. I have been taking Clonazapam for over 3-4 years, and just started the Lorazipam a month ago. But I wonder why no one told me any of this before I started taking it. My husband for the last few years says "she can't remember if she ate lunch..." Which is true is overly concerned and his grandmother was a 'never take meds' person so he has grew up with the idea that meds are bad, try herbal and vitamins. Has anyone else heard anything about these 2 meds causing things like this?

i like this article. I’ve sent it to important people, select friends and family, in my life who aren’t bipolar to help them understand bipolar (as much as that is possible). I think it does a pretty good job on helping explain, in layman’s terms, for example, how a person with bipolar thinks. Just sharing.

My nephew is having his third surgery tomorrow morning. They clamped his tubes in hopes that the lung would stay inflated but it collapsed again so he's back on the tubes. No telling how much longer he will or won't be in hospital. It has been 8 days now.
