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
When you are asked to take medication in the Morning and Night when Label on the box, would you follow it to 12 Hours between taking it, or what would you think of Various time in the Morning and A Various time at Night? If you didn't have a set 12 Hour Period would you think people would have more Seizures, Because I use to work early at 6am up to Last February, but would take my Medication at 9pm for Night , so this would be over a 12 Hour Period.
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
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

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
Does anyone know if 200mg 2x day is a high dose? I mean I could ask my neurologist. Just curious.
I take 1 200 in morning 2 at night and mind are brand name and never had problem but came sz free goning on 25 yrs as also take Tegretol 400mg 1 in morning 1 at night same time brand name
For example, maybe having to go off or reduce meds, during pregnancy and post, illness etc.
Some of the safest meds for pregnancy are AEDs now. Check with Dr bout yours just to ease your mind. When had kids 44 years ago only 2 meds to choose but not today. Ask Dr also what to expect while… read more

These are the kinds of things that cause my seizures, how common are they with everyone else? I'd like to know what triggers your seizures:
- Time spent on electronic devices
- Medication not taken on time
- Not enough sleep or rest
- Going to bed late
- Not drinking plenty water
- Not eating healthy
- Getting to hot
- Reading to much
- Showering late at night
- Dust on clothes or in the house
- Infections like cold or flu
- Certain foods
- Bright or flickering lights
While very hard, it sounds like therapy will be good for you in the end.
I don't know what it is about people staying away. Everything is all about families (religion, ways of socializing with… read more
