Hey everyone, my doctor just recently increased my meds how do you adjust to the dosage in the first couple of weeks thanks?
Also if its dizziness as a side effects sometimes,( not always) the dizziness can be overridden by adding higher concentrate of sodium. ( chicken noodle soup broth, pickle juice, etc)
@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member makes a good point. Just take it easy. I usually read the side-effects, rest/nap, and when I wake up, see if you feel those effects. If you feel tired when you wake up and one side-effect is fatigue…but that’s just me.
Look for side-effects and possible remedies like eating after taking it.
It’s up to the Dr. on whether or not he/she increases your med dosage. When you get your blood levels checked, that will tell your Dr. , whether or not the med get increased or not. It’s even possible that your Dr. , may or may not , change you to a new med or add to the med that your already taking.
Watch the side affects of the medication. If they feel off call your doctor.
I have had a prescription increase after my last seizure and became mean in a few days after.
Called the neurologist and lowered my medication to the previous level. I have not had any issues after that. Medication is working fine I'm happy to say.
Have a blessed night.
