Is Anyone On Here Taking Lamotrigine?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Is anyone on here taking lamotrigine? I’m up to 150mg twice a day at the moment which seemed control my seizures for a while, but I had several nocturnal seizures in the early hours of Wednesday morning which left me with a horrendous headache which lasted all day and unable to function. Didn’t sleep last night as I just can’t switch off. Tried to get some sleep today but not happening, which is leaving very tired and frightened. I wish this illness would go away….think I’m losing my mind.

Is Lamotragine Good For Controlling Myaclonus?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi everyone
My Neurologist has suggested taking Lamotragine alongside Leveteracitam to control Myaclonus. Leveteracitam has reduced the Myaclonus considerably but I still have them especially when I cant manage tiredness, stress or in an environment that brings anxieties. Does anyone take Lamotragine and if so does it reduce Myaclonic seizures? and what are the side effects people are experiencing on this drug?

Keppra Vs Lamotragine
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

My new provider wants to change me medicine but my family claims I had Keppra rage which I never noticed the last time I was on Keppra but the new provider also wants to try lamotragine . So it is one or the other all together I feel almos.t all my family is toxic and non supportive 🙃 😕 so I have no way to gauge this and I've tried both medications before I attempted suicide. Then they took my klonopin and other drugs that controlled my seizures .
