I am 47. I have been very busy and stressed out up until a month ago. I was Secretary
for a group / club I belong to. I was at a meeting yesterday and I said I was the Secretary
to someone. The President pulled me over to the side and said I resigned. I did not remember doing it. Now looking back, I may have. Am I going crazy? How can someone who never touches alcohol or drugs, someone that eats rights and weighs in the right range be so messed up?
Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing Internal Medicine Physician. Excellent service is my goal.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I have taken the same medications for years under a Dr's car.

Trazadone for sleep (I have had a sleep study)


Topamax for migraigns

Lexapro for depressions

Thanks for this reply
I think the meds have definitely become the issue along with stress and sleep issues likely.
The meds are needed but now that you are under stress they are causing problems
These meds, together, can cause memory impairment, hallucinations and delusions
I think the meds need to be changed for a while until your stress is better controlled
I hope this helps. If you have more questions, just reply. :)

Thank you so much. I will talk to my Dr. ASAP. It will be scary to change my medications after so many years but I can't be walking around not remembering I resigned. If it isn't so sad it would be laughable. Thanks again.

You're welcome.
I'm glad I could help and I wish you the best.
