No need to apologize. Tell your neurologist's about the depression side effect of that medication
As someone who was once labeled as not likely to ever reach a long-term seizure free state (and have… read more
When did you get it?
Diagnosed 1992 I think winter. Oh wait nope summer.
In the case of most of us (unless those who suffered brain damage that specifically damage to long-term memory in the inner brain with the hippocampus and memory central command) or are suffering from dementia (easier to get a test now that can show if you have early stages or soon will have do to recent research published earlier this year), then all of your memories (nothing that occurs during a seizure except those seizures like the Simple Partial Seizures that you are completely aware… read more
It is addictive. I put "Clonazepam dependence symptoms" into Google. There are several articles.
I'm sure this information is included with packaging.
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 started with seizures just as I was coming out of menopause at 54. I’m going to be 64 in June. All of my family and friends as well as myself think my epilepsy was brought on by a hormonal change. I… read more
I have heard in the past from several friends who have tried many others including surgery, implants or non-medication alternative methods. However, I think it would help if those of you who have to share your experience with those are now at the point where they have been told that medication will never allow them to reach a long-term seizure free state.
If Q + A section was better organized, then I would not have to ask this question, but we have a support site, so we have to do what we can… read more
@A MyEpilepsyTeam Member Everyone gets nervous. Usually what helps is if you talk to your epileptologist/surgeon. From the surgeon, I learned there was a better chance of dying from a car accident… read more
Since my last seizure, I find my attention span is much shorter, especially when reading. Anyone else experience this?
I’m really happy that Tampa Bay Bucs made it. They’re playing home against Dallas Cowboys Monday night!
I wish I could say something but my husband is a football official (he is an umpire). Both he and. I would be in so much trouble if it was found that he made a prejudiced statement. So enjoy the… read more
I went out yesterday purposely and I'm happy again! I can't wait for this weekend! I'm going to finally do open mic again! Last time was 2020 and I blocked him. I spoke a little ruff to him first
They plan on moving me to an Assisted Living Facility. I am deeply concerned about keeping the Oral Syringes clean and dry. I do a wonderful job, and the Nurse who visits agrees.
Does anyone know how this is dealt with in these places?
Because they think I need a nurse all the time I would not qualify. However, I ended up ordering 30 extra new ones. It was15, but they come in packages of 2. I also gave the Doctor the… read more
Did anyone switch from brand name Vimpat to generic Vimpat recently now that it's available? If so, how are you feeling?
I started generic Vimpat/lacosamide a few weeks ago after 3 years on the brand name. Still trying to figure out how it's going for me. Sometimes I feel like I'm angrier than usual and felt some deja vu sensations today. Used to have those with brand Vimpat every few months though so not anything new.
I switched to generic due to insurance in February 2023. I have had a ton of issues including breakthrough seizures and weakness and lots of double vision and dizziness. My doctor just increased the… read more
