when i was a child (10-16) years old i was prescribed but when i left school the doctors changed my medication. why was this when mysoline was controlling my epilepsy. whilst on mysoline i was having 1 maybe 2 fits aweek but since they change my medication my fits have increased and i am unable to work
I never was able to drive, so had to work on Bus Routes when they ran. I have 2 College Degrees, but Liberal Arts and Human Services do little good. For many years those jobs ended when the Do Not Call List was in effect. I was diagnosed with a Learning Disability in 1981.
yes i have asked my doctor about this but no joy
randy they took them of me because some school GP said my epilepsy had gone leaving to go cold turkey in 76, that same year the british army turned me down stating i was still epileptic
They may of had you on the max dose and your Dr. probably was hoping ( or taking a gamble ) to find a medication that would control better. You should try and talk to you Dr. And tell him/her that you had better seizure control on it compared to the one your on now.
Have you asked about it with your doctor? If so I would take a visit or just try to get opinions for that story to another doctor. If its something you question about its always good to get another opinion on it. If that makes sense
@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member , I was I the same boat. I lived near a city bus Route when I need to get to far destination. Also walked or rode my bike to area where I didn’t need the bus.
I also had close families.so if there were something planned with them I would get pick up by them.
