i have been having seizures off and on for about 6 months and at arapid rate daily for the past 9 weeks( at least 3 a day) I had an EEG and there was abnormalties in the frontal lobe of the brain...I have noticed a significant loss of short term memory sometimes with not recalling anything that was said or done....As a mother and a wife i know how frustrating that is for my family so for me I say memory loss is a usual thing with seizures ...anything I have read about them says it can be a side effect...hope that helps a bit..Good luck and God Bless
