I have Bipolar. I have memory problems. I want to know if my memory problems is part of my Bipolar.
Joseph F Goldberg, MD responded:
Dear littleoreo,

About a third of people with bipolar disorder can experience problems with memory, attention, and information processing due to bipolar disorder itself, but many other factors can impact memory, including current depression, the effects of some medications, drugs or alcohol, neurologic or medical disorders, aging, anxiety, and other causes. Your doctor would be in the best position to evaluate the nature of your memory complaints and offer an explanation on their likely cause.
