Medicine reminder?

Medicine reminder?

I take Levetiracetam and tomapax in the morning and at 6pm. I have my alarm is set for both times but sometimes I don't here the one in the morning or I take it and I'll forget that I did rather it's in the morning or afternoon. What I am asking is how do you keep track or what are you using to make sure you didn't forget?

Carbatrol

I've been put up to 1200 mg per day of tegretol retard. This is the maximum dose and seems very high - has anyone else been on such a high dose and did you suffer any side effects?

Does or has anyone ever felt embarrassed about telling someone about their seizures?

Does or has anyone ever felt embarrassed about telling someone about their seizures?

Or on another note, has anyone ever been a little scared of telling someone you feel like you’re about to have one but end up not? Sometimes I feel like I shouldn’t tell my parents or sister because then they’re going to overreact a little after the feeling went completely away.

How to stop a seizure

How to stop a seizure

I here people say when they feel a seizure coming that take their medication (with aura's or seizure dogs). I take 1- 1000mg keppra in the morning and 2 at night but sometimes I feel them coming and can't stop them. My question is what type of medication is taken to stop them at that moment.
