I religiously take the meds but am having many cognitive issues off late - memory lapses, concentration problems - I just look dazed all the time. Work is REALLY hard, I am not alert and can't grasp topics fast. It's as if I'm always 30 secs behind everyone else. The pdoc said this is NOT due to the medication. She has recommended I go for cognitive testing, to see if the illness itself or depressive symptoms are causing these problems. I was only diagnosed two years ago, I am 30 now, have been through two manic episodes and periods of depression in between. I've heard that the brain may get "scratched" over time due to the illness, leading to cognitive problems. I thought these problems set on later in life - for me its only been two years - will these problems go away?
