Lexapro has kept me on an even keel for several years, but I stopped taking it because when I learned that SSRI's can contribute to dementia. There is a strong history of Alzheimers in my family, and I am already having some memory issues. I am looking for an anti-anxiety med that is not associated with dementia. Someone told me SNRI's are good for older people. Does anyone have research about those?

Hi, @Liane1 – this Mayo Clinic Connect thread on switching from SSRIs to SNRIs might be of interest https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/switching-from-ssri-to-snri/

Many years!!after taking Clonazapam I read the script:
Can cause memory and mood issues.
Is the prize (no head tremor)worth the cost ( mild cognitive impairment)?
