The meds gave me wit, some say a dry sense of humour. Now I can't think of what to say. If someone bates me it's awkward. I know when I have that more lively side of my character, even when I'm by myself. It's as though the dex and memantine used to stimulate that part of my brain. When the dose of dex wore off I would go quiet; I immediately knew. It also gave me the ability to engage in small talk.
