Flying

I have a tremendous fear of flying and can't take things like Valium for stress, or a couple bevvies like I used to. Most of my seizures are triggered by stress. Should I fly? It's a hell of a long way up to seize..and I live on an island..

Dilantins Effects On Bones

Dilantins Effects On Bones

I am almost 6 years seizure free. At my annual neurology appointment yesterday, my neurologist suggest that since I have been taking Dilantin for almost 30 years, that I should consider reducing the amount that I take until I am completely off Dilantin. I am and would still take Keppra. I am very nervous about getting off Dilantin and am wondering if anyone has had ill effects from taking Dilantin over a long period of time. Thank you for your feedback

Does Anyone Else Suffer From The Aura You Get Before A Seizure But Then No Seizure?

Does Anyone Else Suffer From The Aura You Get Before A Seizure But Then No Seizure?

I often feel the aura I get before a seizure but then I don't have a seizure. When this happens I take Valium and it helps and most of the time I don't have a seizure. I'm just kind of curious as to whether this happens to anyone else.

What would blood levels tell the Neurologist and I? So far I do not have yellowing skin or eyes. I am concerned.
