Am I losing my mind?

I feel like I'm slowly losing my memory. It seems to be getting worse some days. My boss will explain something to me that I need to do and five minutes later I either forget or I am very confused. It's mainly at work that I'm like this. I feel so stupid and embarrassed. I feel like I don't belong there., that I'm not good enough. Is it my antidepressant or my nerves of screwing up? This has happened around home too sometimes but mainly at work. My med that I'm on is Effexor I've been on it for mabe 7 years. Anyone have any ideas on how to improve my memory?

HI, not sure if effexor can cause it but I think some meds can. My suggestion is to write notes, I am tons older 55, but I even put a note in the car to pick up milk while I am out running errands or I may forget. So I would say take notes, take really good notes, I can't imagine your boss would mind and in fact he may like that you are that conscientious that you want to do your work correctly. just my 2 cents, Josie
