Vimpat And Memory

Since I started taking Vimpat my memory has gotten worse. It seems to have gotten worse as my dose has increased. Has anyone else had this problem? Vimpat has also raised my blood pressure

Ask your doc if vimpat messes up your memory. Our epilepsy is not remembering things. My friend who does not even have epilepsy tells me the older we get she even cannot remember stuff.

If You Switched To Generic Vimpat, How's It Going?

If You Switched To Generic Vimpat, How's It Going?

Did anyone switch from brand name Vimpat to generic Vimpat recently now that it's available? If so, how are you feeling?

I started generic Vimpat/lacosamide a few weeks ago after 3 years on the brand name. Still trying to figure out how it's going for me. Sometimes I feel like I'm angrier than usual and felt some deja vu sensations today. Used to have those with brand Vimpat every few months though so not anything new.
