    Does anyone else experience the worst nausea after having a seizure? I cannot count the amount of times I thought I was pregnant due to the constant period of nausea. Was this medicine induced, or no? I'm trying to decide if I should find a new drug because of how awful these are.

    Can brief memory problems be a form of a seizure?

    Okay, I have a really bad short term memory but long term memory is great. For the most part, that's typical of anyone within limits of course but mine can really suck sometimes.
