Klonopin
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

My son who is 20 just got put on Klonopin (he was already on Keppra & Vimpat) & I was just curious as to see who all has been on this particular drug & the outcome of it? Side effects seem really harsh?? He's in college so I'm concerned about sleepiness. Waiting on dr to come in & speak to us, but was wondering on your thoughts! Any & all feedback is appreciated! Thank you!

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?

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

Kolopin Side Effects
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Dr prescribed Klonopin in addition to my other two meds. I looked up the side effects to the Klonopin and it makes me a bit nervous. I realize not everyone will have all the effects, but i I am especially concerned about the drowsiness. Does anyone else take the drug and how does it work for you?

Thank you for responding. I hope you find freedom soon. I hate you’ve had to struggle this way.
Hugs and prayers for you

Does Anyone Now Or Have You Ever Taken Zonisimide? What Do/did You Think? Did It Help?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I've been on it for years and my seizures keep getting worse. Now I'm having multiple forms of seizures instead of just tonic clinic like I had originally. And Dr keeps upping my dosage instead of switching meds even though I've requested it repeatedly. I sought out a different Dr and the new one kept me on same med (zonisimide) and dosages and seizures keep getting more frequent and worse and are now coming in clusters that sometimes last for a week!. Only thing nee Dr did was add Nayzilamread more

Please note how both Drs agreed on same meds. Just cause you think you know better doesn't mean you're right. Dr's not listening to you because they do know better. No doctor allows a patient to… read more

Feelings Of Craziness, Paranoia, & Overall Anxiety

Am I the only 1 who experiences this, along with an abundant number of experiences of synchronicity, only to be denied when I try to discuss it with others?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

I just had my one year since my last and I feel like I am on borrowed time. Since I have started having them, I've changed. I'm still me but so different inside. My awareness is on a new level.
