Brain Fog

I have been experiencing brain fog for the past few days. This includes memory issues, trouble holding a thought and trouble with concentration.

I have been googling about it and it sounds like brain fog can accompany bipolar which I have.

The brain fog started when I decided with my doctor to go down 25mg on my Clozapine – from 400mg to 375mg. I have since decided this can wait until stress surrounding my daughter’s finals and graduation dissipates.

Brain fog for me is very different from racing thoughts. Brain fog is difficulty finding a thought and hanging onto it, while racing thoughts are usually elevated and rapidly firing and usually occur with an elevated mood.

Have you ever experienced brain fog or racing thoughts? Do you find brain fog different from racing thoughts?
