One cannot predict, especially at a distance like this, which antidepressant will best suit someone. You should see a good local psychiatrist for a full assessment, and then a discussion of your treatment options. Lorien is one of many effective ADs, though each works well with only around 60-70 % of those who take them. I have no idea why so many people are on Rivotril nowadays, but such meds can indeed affect memory. Major Depression can affect concentration and memory too, but most ADs would help to improve thios, not worsen it
