My memory has been declining so much and I can’t tell if it’s from my anxiety over powering my brain or a certain medication I’m taking

      @Venni3 it goes away after a couple weeks but comes back every time you increase the dosage lol. I’m not taking it anymore though but for separate reasons

      I see you have lamotrigine tagged and I had memory issues when i was on it

        @aries02 I’ve seen it on side effects lists for lamotrigine, but I hadn’t heard of other people who had the symptom long term, genuinely thought it was memory loss for a different reason but this definitely could be a possibility. Physiatrist confirmed. Hope you are holding up well despite having this struggle and I hope you figure out a way that works to decrease it yet still get treatment aid. Pls lmk how if you do 😭

        @aries02 was it hard to come off of? I’m so nervous about the side effects of coming off of lamictal

          @ChloeMae no I stopped cold turkey at 100mg. Completely fine.
