Forgetfulness can be a sign of so many things. It can be caused from medications, vascular issues, Fibromyalgia, fatigue, stress etc. If you are thinking that something is going wrong with your mind, it's best to be seen by a neurologist and be tested. They have cognitive tests that can help determine if one has memory issues. How old are you Caren?

Hi Caren. I am a bit younger than yourself (58) and have similar probs in terms of oral communication and spelling. I try not to worry too much about such things. For me it could be my bp, meds or just simply that I am getting a bit older and my memmory is not as I once enjoyed.

Take Care Keep Sharing.

Lamictal caused that in me, Caren, but the lower my dosage was dropped the less it happened. Now, I just make dumb mistakes! I finally wound up taking 15 mg. Lamictal because I changed my diet and drank water only. Had to finally drop Lamictal, however, because of a skin reaction. (See side effects of Lamictal for some.)

It was one good medication, though, I must say.
