Health Insurance
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

What is the best company to get health insurance with? I turn 26 in April and will no longer be able to get my medicine through my mother's insurance. I take name brand Keppra and cannot afford to pay for it outright. However, it is the only thing that has ever helped, I tried switching to generic when I was younger and ended up having a seizure after being seizure free for five years. I've been back on name brand ever since then and have been seizure free now for 13 years. If anybody could give… read more

I took Keppra XR. Insurance changed it generic and seizures increased. I had to get prior authorizations. Dr stated it has to be name brand due to the ineffectiveness of the generic. But I was… read more

Liquid Medications And Clean Dry Oral Syringes
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

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?

Personally I would not use an oral syringe/any kind of syringe more than once. After one is used throw it away and get a new one that as not been used before and use the new one.

Does Loud Noices Or Music Make Any Of You Have Sezuires And High Aniexty?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hello everyone, I was just wondering do any of you have sezuires from loud music in a closed area like my self. Also do you have high anxiety from noice that is unusually louder than usual. I recntly in the last couple of years picked up on this. When someone yells at me in anger sezuires happen no doubt. I ran off one time and hit my head on the wall during a complex partial and dont remember anything. Just woke up with a knot on my head and a bad headache. Can any of you relate?

Medical Alert System?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I been thinking about getting an alert system since im home alone. My service dog can be trained to press the button if i have a seizure and need help. He alerts to some seizures and barks if im down longer than 5min or goes and find the nearest person
Problem is my family has lack of communication skills. They ignore my service dog when he is trying to tell them something! Going back to me having no support at home. My question i guess is... if i can't get them to listen to me or my service… read more

Botox As Treatment
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Has anyone had Boxtox as part of their treatment? Before going to Cleavland clinic for second opinion my neurologist was giving my 40 injections in my skull every 6 weeks. Maybe it was helping stop the spread of my hemangioma. I am just curious because I have not seen anyone mention it.

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

oh god i'm sorry for that I'm intending to inject botox into my jaw to for beauty but I have epilepsy so I still confused. I read your comments and I confused more.

Is Botox Injection In People With Epilepsy Dangerous?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Im learning to inject botox into my jaw as a beautification. I then read briefly that Botox can treat epilepsy. Has anyone tried it yet? And if Botox could treat epilepsy, where would it be injected?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

Depends on a lot of variables. My suggestion would be to talk with your doctor and neurologist about your concerns before getting it.

Is It Werid?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I just purchased a wheelchair on the basis that if I had a seizure when I'm out my mum can just wheel me somewhere private instead of being subjected to strangers staring at her and me , plus I also got it for my periods of paralysis where I can't move and have balance issues and walk funny(ataxia attacks) so mainly it's for safety for me and ease of stress for my mum
I think I'm just concerned how other people will take it especially when I do have a small periods where I can walk okay and… read more

Lapse Of Judgement
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

My mom was diagnosed with focal unaware seizures presumably left temporal onset ..and I want know if lapses of judgement can be seizure related or if Alzheimers or dementia might be setting in.

My mom had a major lapse of judgement today. Today despite me warning her not to, she decided to open the door for a total stranger without questioning him.

My mom and I don't usually open the door for anyone unless they call themselves or other family members call and inform us of someone coming that… read more
