What psychiatric conditions do you have? The Quetiapine is an anti-psychotic type of medication which may be used in schizophrenia or Bipolar disorder >> Based on the combination of meds that you list I suspect that you are being treated for Bipolar depression with anxiety as well (Is that correct or other??)
All of these are psychiatric active medications.. while they may be to your benefit it is also possible that combinations of these types may increase side effect potential (Example Quetiapine plus Zopiclone may increase side effects of dizziness, drowsiness, difficulty concentrating...potential impairment of thinking and judgment)
I think that the zopiclone would be most likley to potentially affect your memory transiently..
I would discuss your concerns with your prescribing doctor. Consider other medication for Zopiclone would be my firtst consideration from your list of meds...
I hope that this information is helpful. Let me know if you have further questions or discussion. I will be happy to get back with you. If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback. Thank You and Best Regards,

Yes it is not a simple issue as you may really NEED and BENEFIT from the medicines as prescribed. The perception of difficulty with memory may also relate to the psychiatric condition of your bipolar disorder. So I advise to discuss this concern with your prescribing doctor. Don't make changes without this discussion with your doctor however...
Let me know if I may be of further help. Best regards,
