>Do anticonvulsants as a category tend to have this effect?

Topomax is the worst offendor, especially when it comes to problems such as word finding. Hence the nickname Dopomax.

Not ALL anticonvulsants effect cognitive processes in such a manner-some are very clean, such as Keppra(which can be used as a mood stabilizer). In any case, cognitive slowing is a side effect that usually resolves after a few weeks of treatment with the drug.
