I don't want to waste your time, so I will cut to the point. I'm taking 1200mg and the blood level 12. I take 600Mg AM and 700Mg PM, so thing what happens, during the day I have no seizure at all, but once I take the medication at night, I will have seizure during sleep (Only), I don't know why. The only difference is that I'm taking 400mg Carbetrol at night that's the only time I take Carbetrol.
Has any one has a problem like that?
Note: other medication I'm taking… read more
I've been put up to 1200 mg per day of tegretol retard. This is the maximum dose and seems very high - has anyone else been on such a high dose and did you suffer any side effects?
Is anyone else on Fycompa and dealing with negative side effects? I was placed on it in addition to Keppra, Carbatrol and Zonisamide and I have not been myself. Both my husband and I truly don't know if the Zonisamide has had any positive effects. My seizure activity has increased in the last 6 months and a Neurologist I see since moving to Florida from Chicago prescribed them. My husband has not been happy with the Neurologist.
My carbatrol prevents my grand mal seizures but not my cluster seizures that are contained to my right leg only. My whole right leg will tense up, jerk and shake. Sometimes it will continuously tingle and my toes will jump. When it does that, if I try to walk I'll have my "leg" seizures. They seen to be Random with no known (to me) cause. Anyone have advice in who to look for for help with these seizures? Or does anyone have any similar?
I have a strange case here, I'm been "FYCOMPA" for over two weeks,but the strange thing that I will start to have seizure once I'm on 4mg. However, 2mg everything is fine, In reality if the medication is working shouldn't give a side-effect, but help out more. Am i right?
Did/Has any one have a situation like that and do you know why?
I take Dilantin and Phenobarbitol, in the last year I have been having Seizure activity, I had on breakthrough seizure in my sleep as far. They tried adding Keppra to the other two but I was turned into a zombie so they weaned me off of the Keppra and put me on Tegretol. I am now up to taking 250 mg a day and have all of the side effects , especially the blurred vision and confusion, I literally made reservations to stay in a hotel in the wrong city! Fifty-three miles West of where we were meant to go!… read more
So I have had 2 episodes of twitching and jerking. My diagnosis is nocturnal tonic clonic but for the twitching and jerking I am aware and am able to respond though it seems like way too much work to talk. The first episode of t & j was after a tonic clonic. I was t-ing and j-ing so much that my husband felt he needed to hold me tight. Not the right response at all and certainly not comfortable. Last night I had another round of t-ing and j-ing. Lasts for several minutes I think. Always… read more
