Do you think your meds affected your memory?  Mine is like swiss cheese.  I was on prednisone for years, I've been on Remicade about 5 months.

I have not noticed any memory problems on Crohn's medications, including when I was on Remicade.  Some of my medications caused vision problems (blurry vision), but no memory or mental issues.

Yeah, I have no memory as well! It's awful. I also lose my train of thought constantly; I feel my brain is mush! I had mild ADD before my diagnosis of Crohn's. Afterwards, being on all these meds, I have absolutely no attention span.
Pentasa-tapering 1000mg/3x 1/08; Entocort 3mg/3x daily down to 1x 2/08; Percocet/Ultram for pain; Prilosec 30mg; Xanax-ANXIETY; Cymbalta 60mg
Neurontin-tapering, 600mg 3x/day
Ferrous Sulfate 325mg/daily for anemia
Azathioprine 150mg
Currently on a Low-residue diet as of 11/26

I'm so tired, when will this get better?
