Odetta Posted September 19, 2012 Share Posted September 19, 2012 I am bipolar, and take 200 mg lamotragine, 40 mg generic geodon, and 100 mg trazadone, a cocktail that works very well for my moods. But it leaves me with brain fog. I am normally very organized, pulled together, prepared, etc. Now, with meds, I have turned scatterbrained and forgetful. I joke about it to my boss, calling it a short term memory issue when he looks frustrated that I can't remember the simple instructions he gave me yesterday. Even my husband - the most scatterbrained person I know, has noticed the difference. I plan and make recommendations for people's money, recommendations that come from analysis of many variables. If I can remember them all, I can make a good plan. I am also in a master's level course that is kicking my butt because I can't remember all that I need to remember. This from a person that aced her way through school and college with a double major. Please tell me there is a solution for this. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
