When did you get it?
Diagnosed 1992 I think winter. Oh wait nope summer.
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
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

I am set to have the ECoG Intracranial EEG(the grid on the surface of the brain), I have had the Depth Electrodes once. With my limited research it sounds that the depth electrodes were significantly easier... Just curious if someone could shine some light on what that whole process looks like and what I have to look forward too.

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
I ask this question because I honestly do not know where I would rate my neurologist. I am not holding it against him that I have not seen him since December 2019 because I he was preparing to get me scheduled to to to the Tufts Medical Seizure Center in March of 2020 when access was shutdown because of the pandemic. Right now, we do not interact at all and he simply faxes in a new prescription to the pharmacy when requested because we need time at that seizure center to figure out what to do… read more
mine is a 1
I have been epileptic since I was about 7 years old and am now 27 years old and feel like this past year has been one of the worst when it comes to the amount of seizures I’ve had
At the beginning of 2019, my doctor and I decided to try a new medication called Lamotragine and slowly take me off the older medication carbamezapine as I wasn’t fully under control. While I was on the carbamezapine I would have about 1 seizure/year and it was durable and livrable. We decided to lean another… read more
I had a right lobectomy surgery back in 2012. It never stopped my seizures but it did reduce them by more than half! I was haveing about 20+ gran mal seizures a year and now im having like 5-8 a year… read more
