I understand ; it can be a problem when otherwise necessary medication interferes with concentration and learning. With a disgnosis of treatment-resistant depression, etc., it will be essential to discuss this issue seriously with your psychiatrist, who knows the various variations in meds and doses which have been tried, and why the current particular combination has been settled on.
Some of the drugs you're on wouldn't typically contribute to the problem, such as Lithium. The Valdoxane is a very interesting new drug what works in ways significantly differently from the ADs we've had so far, on the melatonin system rather than predominantly on the chemical systems the others mostly worked on. It seems to have significantly less side-effects of the weight gain and sexual difficulties sort which the previous ones had, and I haven't seen reports of it affecting concentration and memory adversely
