> my pdoc said at bedtime. I did a week at half of 25mg. Going to full 25mg tomorrow. Can make you tired and weight loss afterwhile. Haven't noticed anything at this dose. He doesn't think I will at 25mg. Huge issue for me is potential condition where you can't quite find the right word in conversation. It drives me nuts because my Mom had Alzheimer's and if it happens (everyone has those moments normally) I get scared I'm getting early alzheimer's. Also problems with memory. I'm now taking it for severe back pain and to protect against seizures.
I had that loss of words thing for sure. I also got lost driving to work one morning ( I had driven the same route at least 600 times before)... It had some negative cognitive effects on me for sure. It wasn't a very long trial thankfully. But for some, it works wonders.
