I feel like the Topamax is leeching my brain. I forget simple (and not so simple) words and jumble words in sentences. Sometimes I speak complete gibberish. It's hard to be a professional when I use words like thingy and whosit or just stand there and stare blankly because all the thoughts ...

bedtime and I am not waking up until 2:00pm in the afternoon. I was given the gabapentin for chronic headaches because nothing would work to stop them, not even Botox.
