Transient Epileptic Amnesia

Tue, 05/26/2020 - 08:36
Hello Has anyone under 50 experienced this? I've just been suspected of having it (background idiopathic generalised seizure). I'm only 32 and typically it seems to happen to people over 50. Just wondered if anyone also has it and how they've found the medication? I've been prescribed lamictal, but am nervous about going on it! Cheers
