Trokendi Xr, Klonapin And I Also Take Adderall. Anyone Know If This Combo Is Ok?

Trokendi Xr, Klonapin And I Also Take Adderall. Anyone Know If This Combo Is Ok?

I have complex partial seizures, 400mg Trokendi xr 2×aday, 2mg klonapin 3×aday, and 20mg Adderall ir 2×aday. Now the doctor wants me on Vimpat but im to afraid to start it. To many meds. I still have auras often most of the time my mom or boyfriend will hold me and talk to me to get me out of it before it goes into a seizure but then sometimes speaking to me doesn't work and im in a seizure. Are these combinations that i take ok? Or even safe? Please help.

Trokendi Xr Or Quedexy

Trokendi Xr Or Quedexy

Tegretol/Carbamezapine

Tegretol/Carbamezapine

Hey everyone
I've been on tegretol/carbamezapine in various doses since I was about 15. I am now 27
I've been starting to think more about side effects, dependency and whatnot as I get older. Does anyone else worry about this? Like what the drugs are doing to your body? I still have seizures roughly once every two weeks, maximum is usually 4 a month, but I have started looking into alternative treatments as well, like acupuncture and the keto diet.
