Did Anyone Have Night Terrors Before Being On Medication(specifically Lamictal) And Now Don't?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Pre Epilepsy and specifically since adapting to Lamotrigine I used to have night terrors / hallucinations everyday for 2 weeks on and off roughly every 3 months. I've not had any after being on Lamotrigine for 8 months. It's now been over a yr since I had bad night terrors so I thought maybe it's from the medication given they are also used for bipolar disorder.

Tho is trippy , I have maxed out on all theme meds. I also ride my bike all over the place. Parity much every med I have been on I have been making out on . Every new one I same to get.

Vision
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I've been on lamotrigine which caused double vision only when I was having a toxic reaction. Now I'm switching over to trileptal and it's seeming that it's constant now. Whether I'm wearing my glasses or not. I'm going to go get an eye exam once I'm up to the full dose without the lamotrigine.

Anyone have similar? I know it's a potential effect of a lot of the AEDs

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

I had double vision a little w trileptal. But that was after it triggered a dormant skin disease so it could have not been the trilleptal. Before the reaction it had taken care of all my seizures and… read more

Lamictal And Or Trileptal
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Can those who have had good results with either lamictal or/or trileptal please comment on your experiences with? thanks :)

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

Several years ago I took a combo of Lamictal and Trileptal. It work pretty well. It really helped improve My mood. It did cause Me to loose ALOT of weight and strength!!

Zonegran And Insomnia
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

My son is switching from trileptal to zonegran currently. He just started having issues sleeping at night the last week or so - he is now taking 150mg of zonegran at bedtime and is weaning off trileptal (now at 600mg AM and PM). Will be checking blood levels of both the end of this week before our next decrease of trileptal.

Has anyone had insomnia on zonegran? If so, did moving it to AM help at all?

Thanks!

I have been on Vimpat and Zonisamide for about ten years and I’ve had insomnia as long as I’ve been on these meds. I’m demanding a medication change now
