Do your seizures have a pattern? Mine are about every 7 days exactly. When I was put in the emu they did stop all my meds within 2 days & nothing was abnormal with my eeg until that 7th day when I had a seizure. Once that happened they immediately started me back on all my meds.

The only time the Dr.'s are allowed to take Meds of us , is when they are going to put you on the EEG. But your neurologist is the one who schedules those type of appts. Not just any Dr.

When the do take you off your Meds, during your EEG , it's done at a gradual pace. They don't take it all away at once.

If you could , you may want to start up a lawsuit with the hospital.
