I am on Lamictal and I have a horrible memory. I was on it for along time.

I can't remember sh*t. Prior to seizures; 2014 I was being being examined by neurologist for dimentia, and Alzheimer's at my wife's insistence. Brain scarring was evident.
Turns out I had been having seizures all my life. Absence and nocturnals, as described by dorm mates and friends.

I've thought about it becoming dementia. I keep a diary and make lots of notes on my computer. I also record conversations with other people or my own notes in case I forget.

I have been on Lamictal a long time and I seem to be absent minded. It’s not all the time, but just enough to drive you crazy! Hope your scan goes well!
