Hi there ladies & gents. I have just joined this group and it seems really nice and welcoming
I was going to ask something, has anyone had any sort of memory trouble when taking the lamotrigine medication? I was on 100mg 3 times a day and my memory really did seem faint. I was getting really worried about this but the doctors didn't really do anything about it. I have had the lamotrigine decreased as I am taking a higher dose of keppra now but really would like someone to write back if they… read more
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.
I currently take lamictal but have been having breakthrough seizures lately. My doctor has me on a very high dosage so I doubt she will raise it but I’m guessing she will add another drug and I’ve been looking at Topamax. What experiences have you had with this drug?
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. I have a birthmark surrounding my left eyelid and left front forhead. Lately my left eyelid swells up everyday. I have Sturge Weber Syndrome also which causes seisures also.Thank you
Im not sure if i asked this before. This is hard to explain but if you take lamictal does it make your hand and body feel like its shaking on the inside?
My daughter was on Keppra and it controlled seizures but with bad side effects and then changed topamax. Topamax is allowing breakthrough seizures with side effects. We want to add back the Keppra low dose with Topamax. Has anyone done this ? The neurologist wanted to just put her on Keppra again completely. And then switch her to lamictal in the summer. She has JME
i'm going to my neurologist today because I can't get Seizure control. I am allergic to Dilantin and phenobarbital and Keppra was a nightmare for me! Gabapentin didn't help either. I need a success story of a second medicine that has worked with Lamictal....anybody?
