Response from Dr. Horwath
Depression is sometimes associated with memory problems and decreased concentration. But these types of symptoms should improve if you get effective treatment for your depression.
People sometimes develop memory problems due to the direct effects of HIV on the brain. But for most people this does not occur unless the HIV infection is relatively advanced. The best treatment is an effective antiretroviral regimen.
