i would say... write all this 'tingling' stuff down. the time and date, how long, what happened, all of it... and when the dr is here, you will give the note and/or talk to him about it.
i never took quedexy or briviact so i dont know the side effects first hand. i google the side effects of quedexy and found out that the side effects is tingling (and many MANY others side effects).
as for your questions, probably. it dose not matter that much (if it is the meds) but if the higher the dose the more the meds will affect you. the problem is everyone is different so the meds is different. just trust your gut feeling.

@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member this is the best one I've tried so far it was recommended to me by someone on here. It actually stops some of my cluster seizures before ativan sometimes. My husband will give me an extra 25mg under my tongue and see if that works before ativan. That way I'm not in a stupor. I get really bad Todd's paralysis after some of my larger and more clustered seizures.
