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
Has anyone experience a weight gain on @Keppra? I have gained almost 20 lbs in just 45 days. I also take Zoloft for depression and anxiety.
Just the opposite for me however I'm not on zoloft. I'm on Buspar. Iv lost 40 lbs
Does anyone manufacture a watch to alert to seizures, heart problems, etc.
I only have two skinny wrists, so I don't have a lot of room for multiple watches.😁
My phone doesn't automatically call 911. It sent a picture to certain contacts. When I had a heart attack & my daughter called 911 from Michigan I tried to convince EMTs all I needed was a… read more

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?

2. I would get shaky hand or hands, if I didn’t eat
Had seizure that involved frequent vomiting and in and out of consciousness. Was in seizure 6 hours which is the longest I've ever heard of. Luckily I was in emergency 5 of those 6 hours.
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.

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
