I've been taking Lamotrigine for about four years now to control my epilepsy. I've been seizure free since taking it. But about two years I realised I could no longer remember my life. My long-term memory had all but disappeared. After talking about it with my doctor I decided to continue taking the medication as I didn't want to risk my seizures coming back.
In the last year I've realised my short-term memory is also deteriorating. It's become really bad recently. I'm struggling with life.
I'm going to speak to my doctor about coming off Lamotrigine.
I want to know if anyone can tell me how likely it is my memory will improve and whether I'll get my memories back.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
