Any drugs, like diazepam, that reduce anxiety etc. but that don't cause memory loss?
Any wonder drug out there that doesn't cause memory loss and can be used long term? I'm not self diagnosing or anything like that just wondering because my memory goes when I get prescribed diazepam and I really resent it. Thanks in advance x I know there's no magic wand/med and this isn't a sole route of enquiry wherby I'm looking for something to help my life be more viable, just one area to look in to aswell. skunk increases my anxiety the next day, I used to smoke it to chill out of an evening and it works well short term but it seems to make my worries worse overall. Looking back after ten years of using that route!

I find Valerian Root helpful. I agree with the diazepam memory loss thing, I lost whole conversations! I take beta blockers and valerian and it's the best combo i've tried. Valerian is much stronger than most other herbs, there is a noticeable effect!

These drugs block the release of acetycholine . Your brain can not function without it. These drugs cause chemical imbalances . Reason for the side effects .
