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?

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.

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

Yes! All the time! It's bad enough telling people you know, but telling people you only know socially is even worse.

Does Anyone Else Experience Depression With Epilepsy?

Does Anyone Else Experience Depression With Epilepsy?

Carbatrol

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?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

Talk to your neurologist about tegretol. It is suppose to due damage to your liver. My Neuro. Wanted to take me off but didn’t yet.

Does anyone else try to fight the… read more

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

To the answer of "shutting down" or "taking control" of the seizure coming on, it has worked in some cases. I guess it is very rare I have more than one… read more
