Anyone Having Nocturnal Seizures Only? Any Advice On How To Control It Better?

Anyone Having Nocturnal Seizures Only? Any Advice On How To Control It Better?

Currently in Carbamazepine, but still have some episodes around every 2 months.

I was having seizures nocturnal only for years tried all kinds of meds, then I did a sleep study and found I had sleep apnea and also started CBD, and melatonin. The melatonin resets your natural sleep/wake cycle but ya gotta get a good one. So I have a cpap machine, but even if you don’t have sleep apnea one of the most important things you can do is to try n go to bed around the same time every night, don’t eat late and keep that cycle as normal as possible. Also check Keto diet and try to keep stress at a minimum. Sorry so long I wish you all the best

Is Your bedroom a mess like mine? I have a new sound system to set up. Try 're-arranging the furniture in Your bedroom like I have to. Do something that makes Your mind busy, something positive, something new that will change Your life style somehow. Not something that is a trigger for seizures.

Mine are only sleep-induced, taking Epilim aka Depakine. Wish there was some way of stopping the seizures but have found mostly stress related, if that helps. But stress is a natural part of life, so trying to organise things better or to concentrate on the most important job can help you relax & give you a sense of usefulness. All the best
