Tips for remedying brain fog include stimulants, antidepressants, daily physical exercise, adequate sleep and exercising the brain with activities such as reading, doing puzzles or playing an instrument, says WebMD. Post-it notes around the house and to-do lists can help manage brain fog over the long-term.
Identifying the source of brain fog helps find the best remedy. Common causes include depression and fatigue or conditions such as multiple sclerosis and celiac disease. Some medications can also cause brain fog, such as those for bladder and sleep problems, according to WebMD.
Staying very organized, avoiding multitasking and setting timers and reminders are effective strategies for managing memory loss and confusion associated with brain fog, WebMD adds.
