Cognitive dulling is basically just a slowing of the thought process. My wife and I called it "a case of the stupids". You just have a day or two (for most people) of not being able to process simple information, not to the point of being a danger to yourself or others, but irritating little things. Like not being able to do simple math equations, forgetting where you put things, stuff like that. You go up at relatively small doses on the Topamax (usually 50 mgs per week) and most people have this dulling for a day or two at each increase. Once you've hit your target dose, the dulling will stop, at least it did for me. And the positive effect on my mood swings was well worth the minor discomfort along the way.
I hope your day is a good one,
