Memory and Depression

Aug 25, 2004


I am confused about my husbands mental health. He is very forgettful and will tell you he never said things that he actually said. He has mood swings and everybody is wrong but him. He takes zoloft 100mg twice a day. Please help!

Response from Dr. Horwath

You didn't mention if he is HIV positive. If he is, then the memory problems and moodiness may be due to the effects of the virus. He should have an evaluation to rule out cognitive impairment (problems with memory, thinking, calculations, etc.).
