Memory

Memory

I know that with one of the 4 epilepsy you have in the brain it shows memory loss, but do you think Medication for Epilepsy would have effect on your Memory other then with the one of the epilepsy which you have?

The majority of medications have memory side effects.

Meds control your seizures & of course brain needs to what I call recharge. I to this day still have to remember this or that? People don’t understand our illness at times. You’re in the right place to ask questions. 💜🤗

Nope-Meds will help to correct problem not accent them. When we don't treat seizures is when memory loss gets worse.

It depends on the medication you are taking. Some will and others won't. You have to check the side effects of your meds so you know what you are dealing with.
