Yes antidepressants may cause memory problems in some people. Examples of medications that can interfere with memory include over-the-counter and prescription sleeping pills, over-the-counter antihistamines, anti-anxiety medications, antidepressants, some medications used to treat schizophrenia, and pain medicines used after surgery.
I do not advise stopping any of your prescription medication without first consulting your doctor. Many medications named above if stopped should be done on a gradual basis. I also recommend consulting a physician to be evaluated for any sudden onset of memory loss, which could also be due to other conditions not related to any form of dementia.
