Hi!  I am new here & glad to be here.  I was hoping someone could shed some light on something for me...I am 45 yrs old and had Epilipsy since I was 12 - I had a span of time (10-12 yrs) where it appears I may have outgrown it, however; it is back.  I have been on Lamictal for approx. 5 years now.  My question is - has anyone else been losing thier hair?  I am losing mine by the handfuls!  It doesn't seem to run in my family and I just haven't been the same since I started meds.  I am also taking a couple of other meds: Zoloft, & Adderall.  I am not happy living this way.  This is just a sampling - there seem to be a lot of side-effects (scary stuff) - NO short-term memory at all, freezing up while talking, forgetting simple life-long tasks, phonetic spelling - maybe I am going into Alzheimers.  I don't know - but I am losing hope and getting tired.  Any advise would be most appreciated.  eyes
