Hi there all, I've just discovered this group while trying to research Trazodone/mental confusion. I am a 63 year old woman who's been on these pills for just under two years and I am terrified by bouts of increasing confusion/forgetfulness. Not small incidents but walking, absentmindedly out of supermarket with a trolley full of shopping which is unpaid for; constantly leaving my bank card everywhere (at least once a week); unable to locate things in normal place (ie the cheese I wrapped yesterday SHOULD be in the fridge but nowhere to be seen; lost two purses....and on and on it goes..... I'm terrified I may be suffering from dementia symptoms. I've tried to come off trazodone which I was prescribed for anxiety (originally 300 mg but now have it down to about 35-50 mg) but the anxiety just seems to ramp up before I get off. My GP doesn't seems to take this seriously and I'm at my wits end. Would love to hear if anyone else has had similar experiences with this drug. I just feel so stupid and so old!
Hello. My name is Christie. I am 24 years old and have been taking topomax for about 2 months for migraines. For about 2 weeks I have been getting nosebleeds. 2 have been really severe. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this. My doctor wants me to stop taking this medication. This sucks because the medication really really helps me. I don't have migraines any more, I've lost weight, and my mood is better! Any info would be great! Thanks!

I have always had on and off acne and bowel problems, but both issues subsided until about a month ago. My last doctors visit was around march and I was advised to start taking Magnesium and Coq10 in combination with Topomax for headaches so that I didn't have to take a muscle relaxer, so I did ...
