Depression & memory: Both depression and anxiety can affect memory. What happened in last few months? Did you change any of your medications? Side effects of new meds could be causing this. Age-associated changes in memory are normal if you are over 50 years old. Make sure you are getting enough sleep, and eating well. Regular exercise (like brisk walking) of 30 min/day helps blood flow to the brain. Talk with Dr
