A Medication Made My Grades Plunge?!

Did you know a side effect of your medication could make your brain not be able to concentrate? Well, it happened to me and this is my story!

I have had severe migraines since I was in elementary school. They got to the where I would have to go home from school because the light was making it worse, and the migraine was giving me nausea.

So, the summer before my freshman year my doctor decided to put me on a medication for them because I was getting several a week. From freshman year to my senior year (now) I have noticed it gets harder to concentrate on school work.

I finally decided it was time to bring it up to my doctor. When I brought up this concern to my doctor she said it was a side effect of my migraine medication called “brain fog.”


I had no idea a medication could mess that much with your brain or I would have stopped it a long time ago!

Let me know if anything like this has happened to you! Have a great day/night!

Thank you,

Ashleigh Christine 🙂
