I had a car accident over 40 years ago and never seized until 12 years later. It's believed that the accident caused my condition. 20 years after that my neurologist diagnosed me being bi-polar. I am putting forth information rather than conclude that the seizures caused bi-polar, because I had never before been said to be bi-polar. After his diagnosis, he switched me from tegretol to lamictal, since lamictal is for both seizures and bi-polar.

( my wife also has me on a tone of OTC) she checked
with the dr. first to make sure that they do not interfer
with my meds. I also read my BIBLE and study it

given as well
