... severe migraines . I have taken this for years but feel more stupid as time goes on . I have read if you stop the drug your memory does not return.
I was on Topamax and noticed cognitive symptoms as well. I think I was only on it for around 6 months and decided to get off of it because I did not like the side effects, including being a severe appetite depressant for me. My memory has been terrible as of late and I just attributed it to fibro fog but now that you mention it it did start to deteriorate around the time I was taking the Topamax. I don't know about the memory not returning thing but I definitely had cognitive issues with it.
