Any Medication Out There That Doesn't Dumb You Down???

I've been hearing from people on this forum that the drugs they're taking slows down their thought process. I'd like to hear from these people about what drugs they've been taking. I'd also like to hear from people who feel their drugs have been helping their thought process.

The meds do...Especially topamax. I have never felt so "slow" so to speak in all of my life. I really felt like a "dumb blonde" and all those other things. It is bad. The meds are not anything to play around with. Take the smallest possile does and follow your drs. Directions.
