  1. Lack of sleep is the most common cause. Too little restful sleep can also lead to mood changes and anxiety which in turn can contribute to memory impairment.
  2. Many drugs can affect memory, which include tranquilizers, antidepressants, blood pressure drugs and anti-allergic drugs.
  3. Low functioning thyroid can affect memory.
  4. Drinking too much alcohol can interfere with short-term memory.
  5. Stress and anxiety can lead to memory impairment. Both can interfere with attention and block the formation of new memory or retrieval of old memories.
  6. Forgetfulness can be a sign of depression or a consequence of it.
  7. If you are vegetarian, vitamin B12 deficiency can cause memory impairment.
