Sodium Level Low

Sodium Level Low

I am on Keppra xr 3500mg and tegretol xr 1600mg. 3 months ago my sodium level was 134 now it's 128. I was wondering if that sodium level was dangerous at all to my health. My doctor lowered my tegretol to 1400. Has anyone had any experience like that?

Zonegram Experiences And Side Effects

Zonegram Experiences And Side Effects

Hi, I keep reading really bad things about Zonegran side effects, I was supposed to start last week, but keep postponing. I usually get 1-2 nocturnal seizures every 2-3 months, so I’m not sure if it’s even worth the change (currently on Tegretol). I would really appreciate if anybody could share their personal experiences and or effects with this med. Thanks 🙏

Dilantin

Dilantin

I took Dilantin for a few years as a child. I'm not sure why my doctor switched me from Dilantin to Tegretol, but I'm assuming it's because I broke through on it. I really liked it, but I suppose what I'm on now is best for controlling my seizures.

Since then, I've been on numerous forms of Tegretol,, Tranxene for a short time, and currently, Leviteracetam(Keppra, in addition to Tegretol). Chelsey, what does VNS stand for?

I have complex partial seizures, 400mg Trokendi xr 2×aday, 2mg klonapin 3×aday, and 20mg Adderall ir 2×aday. Now the doctor wants me on Vimpat but im to afraid to start it. To many meds. I still have auras often most of the time my mom or boyfriend will hold me and talk to me to get me out of it before it goes into a seizure but then sometimes speaking to me doesn't work and im in a seizure. Are these combinations that i take ok? Or even safe? Please help.

Lamictal Xr Or Primidone

Lamictal Xr Or Primidone

Does anyone notice bad memory on either of these drugs? I have noticed lately that I do something and can not remember doing it, even a year or so ago!! This is depressing to me, since I am noticing it myself.,

Thank's John I will take on your advice because lists and notes are a good idea to show that I am not dumb.
