Strange side effect from Topamax?

Ok, this is going to sound very odd, I realize...
I started taking Topamax to prevent migraines about a week ago. I am now up to 175 mg (my dr recommended a quick titration schedule). I have minimal side effects: brief tingling, occasionally not being able to find the right words, slight loss of appetite. The one thing that I have noticed that is making me scratch my head is that it seems like every person I see, I think I recognize them. At the grocery store, I felt like I "knew" almost every person I saw from somewhere. I used to own a dance studio in my community, so typically I do know one or two families at the grocery store, but this time I was feeling like I knew everyone. Watching TV that night, I was trying to "place" every actor on the show, like "what show was he on before?". It was like my brain was trying to make connections where they didn't exist.
I know I am really stretching here, but anyone heard of this as a side effect of Topamax before?
