LAMICTAL and cognition, mental clarity, etc.

Posted by Bekka H. on March 27, 2002, at 2:06:00

I have yet another Lamictal question. . . For all of you seasoned Lamictilians out there, can you tell me how Lamictal affects your cognition, learning, memory, etc.? So many of you have written such positive, promising posts about Lamictal, and I assume that if it affected your mental status adversely, you would have said so. Is that correct? I have heard that, of the three anticonvulsants, Neurontin, Lamictal and Topomax, Topamax is the worst one for learning and memory, and Lamictal is the "best" or least likely to impair cognition. Would you say that is true in your experience?

I started Lamictal recently, and I have felt some confusion that I did not feel before I started it, but I thought that might be due to the lack of sleep. I've slept very poorly since starting the medicine, and sleep deprivation definitely impairs cognition!

Thank you for your help.
