Could memory loss be a side effect of schizioaffective disorder?

I was diagnosed with a schizioaffective disorder and my treatment was through zyprexa. Does this medication have side effects like memory loss?

Unlikely. Much more likely is that you have a secondary Schizoaffective Disorder from brain disease. Psychiatric Schizoaffective Disorder unlikely to affect memory. Doubt Zyprexa would be the cause. But anything is possible with a strong medicine like this. Consult the physician who prescribed the Zyprexa and see if your timeline changed when the med was started
Memory loss is a less common side effect of zyprexia. Schizoeffective disorder itself may be associated with memory loss.Talk to your psychiatrist.
