Our expert says:
I doubt whether any of us is as bright as when we were at university maybe 20 years ago. One of the elements within any story such as yours, is the inevitable effect of aging ; and where memory is concerned, the issue of how busy and distracted one has been - you can't remember things you didn't really register in memory earlier on You cant look up in your diary things you didn't write down earlier on.
Concentration, as you say, is a critical element, too.
I agree with your shrink about the value of repeat neuropsychiatric tests now, especially as there is a basline against which to interpret the results.
Rivotril like its family of drugs can have significant impact on concentration and memory, and may do so for some time after each dose.
