Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The above drug may cause lack of interest or concentration.

Other causes like alzheimer disease or parkinsonism or vitamin B12 deficincy or normal pressure hydrocephalus or multiple lacunar infracts etcetera are also possible. Until examination is done, it is difficult to say what it is.

Please consult your doctor who will examine for the cause and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
