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 was prescribed Depokote 20 years ago but discontinued shortly after due to side effects and it did not control the hormone triggers. I have had auras for the past 20 years but I have now had 2 grand mal seizures in the last 8 months.
The birth control pill is great for any type of hormone discrepancy. Helps by keeping them sll level so no rise and fall monthly. If you already have say a high estrogen level the sudden increase… read more

That will go away over time, I've been epileptic for 40 years now the embarrassment of having a seizure in public never really goes away.
In 1988 an endocrinologist- neurologist- Dr. Andrew Herzog confirmed the reason seizures happened just before my period due to my high estrogen levels. Estrogen & testosterone are used by the brain & body extensively and should not be messed with so I was waiting for it to happen naturally via menopause. Age 56 it did so seizures did abate. They returned, estrogen levels increased cause my brain started to make it's own estrogen. Like a second puberty breasts increased and metabolic rate did… read more

Had grand mal seizure last night, after I came too. I needed help to bathroom & got sick for 20 minutes or so. I have never had that happen before.
