Does Lyrica can cause permanent consequences on memory?

+1 vote
Lyrica is great for me, removes all symptoms of fatigue and anxiety, but by regularly taking the drug I saw that I have difficulty concentrating, page book I can not read because my thoughts wander

Did you have such cases? Do you have any advise for this ?

Yes, pregabalin (Lyrica) can cause difficulty concentrating, confusion, and forgetfulness: https://anxietyboss.com/anxiety-treatments/prescription-drugs/#pregabalin. I'm not aware of permanent effects on memory. The only solution to these side effects is either dose reduction or discontinuance.
