What causes memory loss?

default
Posted on Mon, 28 Jul 2014
Question: I am facing memory loss issue. Around 2 years back, when I was in college, I felt that I have started forgetting conversations which I had with my friends. Around 18 months back, this problem increased so I consulted a psychiatrist. I also got a CT Scan done back then but it was normal. The psychiatrist prescribed me the following medicines which I did not start:
Cut E - Vitamin C & E
Netlift - Piracetam 1200mg
Mycostarr - Citicolin 500mg
Storvas LP - Vitamin B
I joined my job 1 year back. Since starting, I felt the need of writing things down during discussion for reference later on. In past 6 months, I have seen that my vocabulary has weakened and I am unable to recall the words for the thoughts I want to convey.
Please suggest solution to my problem. I have not taken any medication for this so far.

Brief Answer:
Try antidepressant.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for using healthcare magic. I, Dr Abhishek Kapoor, would help you in this query.

At age of 25 years, if some one has memory issues, it could be due to underline stress. You may have underline depression or anxiety, which is hampering your memory. In that case, you can take tianeptine. It is a antidepressant with brain regeneration activity. There is no harm in talking citicoline. You can take it. That would give you extra benefit.

In case, you have further query, you can ask.

Is it possible that I have underlying stress without consciously knowing?

Also, can you let me know the commercial names of these medicines and the prescribed usage.

Brief Answer:
Stress could be possible at unconscious level

Detailed Answer:
Hi

There are lot of thoughts in our unconscious mind and our life usually is controlled by out thoughts. It is possible to have stress in unconscious mind that would lead to any psychological disorder. For example, number of people get depression, but some time they get masked depression. In these cases, everything happens at unconscious level.

You can try Stablon (tianeptine) 12.5 mg thrice a day. It is a antidepressant, so better to consult a psychiatrist for prescription.

In case, you need further help, you can ask.
