Yes of it doesn't do what it's supposed to I take 1/2. extra. At one point I couldn't sleep at all.I was so tired to do with meds. I took a lot of paracetamols to make me sleep and the amount of paracetamol I used was for a 24 hours. Period They are careful even ambulance men had it written down an abuser of drugs

I would never abuse medication; I take the dosage I am told to regularly and no more!

Also, it sounds like you know how a deeper issue/problem has now emerged in your current situation. How are you dealing with that (therapy, 12 step?) Did the doc know your history?

Hey, I am going to send you an interview I gave to a professional organization on how to take ownership of your true identity as it pertains to yourself, family and society through my story of living with epilepsy most of my life. I am really interested in your feedback on what impacts you the most and/or what you would like to hear or learn more about as it pertains to your story.
