Well, I have one more post to put up, and this one hits close to home. I've had a pretty bad problem lately with memory loss, mostly short-term, but I've also noticed that my long-term memory seems to be slowing down. Some days I don't notice it, other days it's very noticeable and very frustrating! Since I work as an engineer, it's even more important that my memory is working at it's peak at all times. I've been taking Tegretol/Carbatrol for years now, and epilepsy drugs in general for 21 years. I've been told that the act of having a seizure as well as the meds themselves can cause memory loss. I've spoken to my doctor about this, and he is testing me for B12 and thryoid deficiencies.
I'd like to hear from anyone who has had any problems with memory loss, and how you've dealt with the issue.
