healthydoc :

Hello and thank you for your question. I am an adult neurologist and will try to answer your question. It is possible that problems with memory can be related to minor seizures. If you are having frequent memory deficits, it is possible that you may need to increase the dosage of your medications. What medications are your currently taking?

healthydoc :

An increase in medication may be necessary even if you do not have a generalized tonic clonic seizures. Minor seizures, or sub-clinical seizures, can lead patients to have problems with memory.
