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 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
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?
I have been on Lamictal since July of last year. After we got to the dosage my doctor wanted, we found that my level runs on the low side. It still is in the therapeutic range but some days it dips low from being off by an hour when I take it and I start getting auras and absence seizures. The doctor gave me two options: take lamictal three times a day or switch to Lamictal XR. I thought there was only brand name lamictal XR so I opted for 3 times a day until I discovered lamotrigine ER a.k.a… read more
I’m on 3000mg of generic Keppra, and it’ll be increasing soon to 3500mg. If the increase doesn’t help with my seizures, they’re going to have me start Lamictal and lean me off of the Keppra. Has anyone had any experiences with Lamictal or leaning off one seizure medication to another?
