    I have seen issues with word-finding in the past with several antidepressants. I usually do not change the medications since when we deprescribe, the issues with memory diminish and stop on their own. Here is a case study of issues with word-finding https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/22632927/

    I usually have a risk-benefit discussion with the client. Most prefer to stay on the medication rather than take the risk that the depression or anxiety will return. Of course, I document this conversation and assess memory issues after having it on each follow up
