Memory loss with Topamax occurs frequently enought. Many patients get excellemnt anti migraine results from it. When one stops the medication, the memory loss side effect usually goes away. I hope this addresses your question.

Memory loss is not usually seen in most of the people. Is it really that significant in your case?
