Ive been taking these meds for 3 months now and have crazy migraines. Should I stop taking these meds? (Im still having seizures too lol)
One more thing, does any one knows or goes to good epilepsy specislidt in georgia?
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.
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
