when i was a child (10-16) years old i was prescribed but when i left school the doctors changed my medication. why was this when mysoline was controlling my epilepsy. whilst on mysoline i was having 1 maybe 2 fits aweek but since they change my medication my fits have increased and i am unable to work
I am on clonazepam 10mg twice per day, as well as Keppra 3000mg per day, Zonegram 400mg per day. Yet I stil l have grand mal seizures at least once per fortnight. The Doctors won't do anything about it as I have already tried Mysoline, Tegrotol, Epilium, Vimpat, Dilantin etc. What other alternatives can i do?
I'm on Lamictal & Keppra. I've been on Lamictal for at least 7 years and Keppra for about 2. Every once in a while I get very dizzy and my vision gets blurry, almost like vertigo. I know those are side effects of the medicines, too. Has anyone else experienced this?
I have been slowly coming off my main seizure medication (Banzel) and my family has noticed an increase in my seizures, and the intensity or violence in them. is that a common thing to go through when coming off a seizure medicine?
Me and my boyfriend are thinking about having a baby in the future. I have a generalized form of epilespy that is controlled, but I will be on medicine for the remainder of my life. My doctor says I can't be on my meds while pragnaet and I guess I want to hear stories about what this has been like for other people
Anyone gets Tremors out of no where, kinda like cold chills in the head? I seem to get them when i get nervous and excited and when i get a lack of sleep. I never had them before and wondering if it's because i am off my meds hence i can't afford them.
