Hi, @kyoto – experiencing severe amnesia would be very hard, and I'm sure, quite disconcerting.

I'd like to bring in some other members who've talked about transient global amnesia (TGA), like @debera @sybilla @marienancy @sheshe @bernese53 @lorispellman @cjc56 @ceil for their input on how TGA has gone for them and any thoughts they may have about treatment with lacosamide. @jakedduck1 @johnbishop and @jenniferhunter may also have some insights.

I'd also like to offer some Mayo Clinic information on this medication https://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/lacosamide-oral-route/description/drg-20072409

Have you had the opportunity to ask your doctor or the pharmacist about the prescription of lacosamide, since you sound uncertain about it? If so, what did they say?

Thank you, Lisa. And let me add what a great, great resource this website is. Incredible, actually with all the moderators and information available. And thank you for answering me so quickly.
My doc is great, but he seems very cautious in saying very clearly one way or the other about various issues. I can say that my memory feels a lot sharper since being on Lacosamide. It's just this apparently reputable journal article clearly said TGA doesn't respond to epilepsy medication, so I wonder what I am being treated for.
