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
I am 100% positive that hormones are playing a huge factor in both the frequency and intensity of my seizures but I’m not sure where to start to address it. If anyone has any suggestions, PLEASE let me know!
I had more seizures in my 40's than any other time except my teens. The seizures I had in peri menapause were also more severe, causing a loss of memory and balance. It took weeks to get over each… read more

I’ve had epilepsy since the age of 2. I’m now close to 50 yrs. Of age
do want to pose a question to those of you who have been on gabapentin.
Did/does the 600mg 3x a day make your head foggy/unfocused?
I've lowered my dose back to the starter dose of 900mg (1 cap 3x daily). The fog is starting to lift and I'm more alert.
For me gabapentin does seem to help better than vimpat did!
I've emailed my neurologist about taking 100mg 3x/day or at least only 100mg in the mornings. Because the first dose wipes me out! The 2nd and 3rd dont effect me so much. As it's the weekend I know I… read more
