Did Anyone Have Night Terrors Before Being On Medication(specifically Lamictal) And Now Don't?

Did Anyone Have Night Terrors Before Being On Medication(specifically Lamictal) And Now Don't?

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.

Vision

Vision

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

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
