Hi, just wanted to ask the community for any tips on losing weight when your medication can make you gain weight. I go to the gym or swimming for 5 days a week but weight loss is so slow. Has anyone in a similar situation have any tips to share on exercise or diet?
How can I See or answer someone questions On My Story about myself

I had a tonic clonic in public the other day (of all places) and several since, out of nowhere... and even though I am exhausted I cannot sleep! When I do it's for a couple of hours.

Before Christmas I went through roughly a six week changeover from Lamotrigine to Vimpat. The only real problem that I have had is with my teeth and jaw.
