Who Has Experience With Clonazepam And Or Lorazepam?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Who has experience with clonazepam and or Lorazepam? I'm hoping to wein off of Clonazepam soon. I had a seizure every time we tried weining me off Lorazepam. So we switched to Clonazepam in the hopes that weining slowly off it won't cause seizures.

I hope things get better! 🙏🙏🌷

I was on lorazepam and than changed to clonazepam, I don't really know why, no change has occurred. I think doctors try everything. Neither one made much of a difference. I think being on either one… read more

Does Anyone Have Seizures A Day Or Two Before Their Period? Or In The Same Week?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I’ve been narrowing down on when my seizures happen and I have found that they happen the week of my period. They are always grand mauls and last 10 seconds to one minute. I want to learn more about other women who experience the same thing.

I’ve been on clonazepam for almost two years now. I’m prescribed to take more two days before my period, but because I have an IUD it’s hard to track when my periods are coming. Especially the ones… read more

I have been taking Klonopin two times one during the day and one at night for the last month. I take Lamotrigine 300 in the morning and 60mg of cymbalta for years for depression.

Clonazepam Possibly Reason For Lower Seizure Threshold. Advice? Your Experiences?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

My neurologist prescribed clonazepam in May for anxiety and sleeplessness. I find myself being the least stressed I’ve ever been and sleeping great, thus treating my primary triggers successfully, but now I get seizures more frequently and it’s unprovoked, like my seizure threshold is just super low. My GP suggested weening from it, but weening also triggers seizures and it comes without warning/auras
I will be able to manage my stress without anti-anxiety meds, but I’m afraid that this has… read more

What Antidepressants (if Any) Would You Recommend To Take With Keppra?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I was on keppra for 3 years. The depression got so out of hand. 750mgs keppra x3 daily (1 in the morning. x2 at night). I quit a couple months ago cuz depression and fatigue was so bad. Seizures practically every night since so Im going back on, but am now considering antidepressants... Though more medicine is not necessarily my personal preference. Any advice?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

Should I talk to my Dr about these other meds??????

KLONOPIN FOR AURA
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

My Dr. Prescribed clonazePAM (KLONOPIN) for me to take when I get an aura. Of course the pharmacy didn't have it stock 😂 anyone take this before?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

Um I know what it does medically. But I'm nothing anymore. So I would just say I think I would talk more to my neurologist
