Tegretol, memory loss, and menopause

I have been on Tegretol for about thirty years and haven't had a terrible time with the side effects, although thinking back, I realize that I've been experiencing memory loss side effects for twenty years. (groan). Now that I'm a fifty year old woman, I find myself starting to talk about realizing that the words just aren't coming, and it's totally freaking me out.

If I push my doctor hard to change meds she will, but I have only also been on Dilantin and it made my gums swell terribly. Are there any other meds that people can recommend? Especially since, at 50, I have my own memory problems -- I don't need more from meds!

thanks!
