... terrible memory loss and speech impairment. I have trouble talking, I can not think clearly and when I try to remember something I read five minutes ago, I can not remember. I even have trouble spelling words which I use to spell easily. I use to be able to type very well and now I have trouble typing. I started taking Topamax for Bipolar and Borderline Personality Treatment. And also to stop from over eating and lose some weight. What could be causing this? I know the Topamax is but what in the Topamax could be causing this? Will it ever go away? What can I take to make this stop? It is driving me crazy. I am a full time student at a college so it makes it very difficult to do my school work. Thank you!
