We all understand the different difficulties that having this condition have brought to our lives, but I can also be grateful for the good things that have happened because of it. It has brought my family closer together, it has taught me to be more sensitive towards people, it has helped me grow stronger and trust in the Lord more, it has taught me that I can get hit over and over again… read more
I have had epilepsy 52 yrs. I have taken more seizure meds than I can remember and am allergic to over 10. I am currently on 4 AED’s( Dilantin, Vimpat, Zonegran and Klonipin) along with CBD and THC oil. Can someone please give me info...pros and cons? Thank you.
Hi Everyone (New here!)
I recently starting having partial seizure clusters (normally controlled 90% w meds). I narrowed the reasoning down to my recent increase (major) in exercise. I don't know if it's from dehydration, lack or calories, or over-doing it, BUT I am a normally active person, have gone from 0-60 in the past (exercise-wise) and this has never happened. It is the only thing I can relate this to. Normal stress/hormone/LIFE.. except for this. Going on 5 days of clusters and… read more
Ok, backstory first. I was on a cocktail of AEDs (lamictal, zonegran and depakote) for 3 years, without a single seizure. My neurologist moved to CO when they legalized marijuana so he could do studies on it.

I'm a bit embarrassed about this question but maybe someone can help or has similar issues. Do any males have a reduced sex drive because of the medication they take? (and have they identified the tablets).
For over a week now I have been struggling with vertigo (dizziness, shaking, nausea, nystagmus), severe joint pain, headaches, exhaustion. Has anyone else had this and how long did it last? I was hospitalized for 4 days and I am feeling miserable enough that I would almost welcome another hospitalization... and I HATE hospitals, like most of us, I'm sure. The pain in my joints (every joint, seriously) is so severe I cannot lift… read more
I had a RTLE in 2003. When I got out of ICU and a meal arrived I learned for the first time that my jaw would only open about 1/4 inch. And even that much opening was causing extreme pain in the right side of my face. For the 2 days I was in the hospital after surgery they could only feed me 2 scoops of mashed potatoes, i got them into my mouth by licking the potatoes frombetween the tines of the fork after fitting the fork between my teeth.
Here I am 15… read more
