Every couple of years I have seizures then my Dr wants to try something new or ups the dosage. The meds I'm on now are making me dizzy and off balance
Will it set off with excessive motion.
I have heard of this but I am afraid to shell out the money only ro have it not work. I'm waiting for it to be out a little longer so I can hear how well it works. If it works well, I would be more… read more
As a child, I took Phenobarbital at night, and Tridione in the daytime. Anyone else heard of this? My new Dr.'s give me funny looks, but I know what I was taking. I was 17 when I stopped taking it.
I take 145 mg of phenobarbital.
116 at night
On it 29 years
I was told I have Grand Mal and other Seizure Disorders one of them called Pseudoseizures . Anyone else ever hear of this? I'm told it's hard to diagnose and often gone undiagnosed or is missed. My family and I was just grasping the Grand Mal Seizures now there's more to try and sort thru?
I agree especially with MarKC - thanks for reminding me of ' non epileptic seizures' I've also heard of them being called ' pseudoseizures' too
I take 1000mg levetiracetam and 500mg Lamotrigine a day. And I'm not interested in having children yet But I would love to in years to come, So I was just wondering if that it wouldn't affect anything? I keep getting different answers by the same doctor and its annoying me.
Do not worry as all Docs say different things so just always ask Doc first xxxx
So I'm going back to college. I start on August 11th. Here's my deal though. I've been in and out of college since I graduated in 2009 because of Epilepsy problems. I've gone to college three other times already. Also for three different things. Should have stayed with the same track I know but I'm indecisive and I get bored easily. First time I was at the community college, I was there for my AA but I had just found out that I had Epilepsy. My GPA started dropping near the end of a year and a… read more

My 5 year old daughter was diagnosed with epilepsy last year. She's been having seizures every 1-2 months since then. But when she has a seizure, it never stops on its own. Every time, she has to go to the hospital and receive diazepam injection. Is there any other person with similar conditions? Will it get worse with time? I'm so worried.
I've never dealt with a kid with epilepsy just myself. See if her doctor would give you a concentrate (liquid) RX of diazapam or lorazapam and educate you on the dosages for her seizures. It can go… read more
Has anyone had side effects with certain foods, with your medications. Cause ever since I started taken lamitical I cant eat any of the spanish beans I used eat. Which is weird. It used to be fine when I ate spanish beans with rice but ever since I started taken lamitical for my seizures is that a side effect or no?
I'm on that but I'm just getting immune to every medicine 😢 I wouldn't take Felbamate

My 9 year old missed his levetiracetam this morning. We did not realize it until noon. He takes his medicine twice a day. Every 12 hours. We try to take it every time at the same time. His doses are 8:30 am and 8:30 pm. We have this set due to school and bed time. My question is: Is it safe to skip one dose. My son only had 2 full convulsion seizures. He also has night seizures/terrors when sleeping. His doctor wants to start winging him off his medication after we view his next EEG and… read more
Thank you everyone for your reply. So far he’s fine. No affects from 1 mission dose. We have timers and alarms on every phone and device to remind us. We were distracted at that time. I hope it never… read more
