> Cognitive side effects increase with dose but decrease with time... i started to get *really* stupid, along about 200mg, but had no effect like that before that dose. But i am pretty small, BMI of 16.2, so that might have had an effect. Interestingly, adding verapamil seemed to reverse a lot of the stupidity... i dunno, maybe the increase of blood flow to the brain, or something. I was supposed to go all the way up to 200mg twice per day, but i was already so skinny and losing weight (got down to BMI of 15.8 on 200mg) that the doc pulled me off it... none to soon, either, man i hated Dopeymax.

I had severe dysnomia at 400mg and an alternative you may want to ask your doc about Zonegran, several studies have shown similar weight loss assocted with this med
