Hello
Thanks for using Doctor Spring for posting your query.
I would require a couplle of more details before I can help you with your query.
1) What is your current age?
2) How frequent is the forgetfulness? Do you remember it after some time?
3) Do you have any stressor or any depressive symptoms like sadness of mood, reduced interest in work, hopelessness, worthlessness.
Hope to hear back with these details,
Kind regards.

I m 23,yrs old my problem is childhood one. I have been depressed a lot lately


Hello
The forgetfulness that you are experiencing seems to be pseudo-dementia. It occurs due to depression and firstly the depression has to be treated. Depression can occur with regular stress and it can also occur biologically without any stress as well. You need proper treatment for the same. There are various effective therapies for depression like fluoxetine, venlafaxine, bupropion, mirtazapine or escitalopram and they are all very effective and mostly safe. You may also require some benzodiazepines like clonazepam or lorazepam for a short period like 2-3 weeks to reduce the anxiety and help with your sleep.
If you are averse to the drug therapies then there is also an option of cognitive behavioural therapy. This therapy is taken by either a psychologist or a psychiatrist in which the therapist identifies impaired cognitions (Thoughts) and try to correct them. They are 15-20 min weekly session and there should be around 8-10 sessions to help you with your illness.
Ones the depression improves, the symptoms of forgetfulness will also resolve.
Kind regards
