XCopri Upgrading And Night Terrors

XCopri Upgrading And Night Terrors

Has anyone else had night terror-like seizures that come with deja vu when upgrading your dosage of xCopri? I've upgraded it twice, and on both nights I had horrible dreams that I swear I've had before, accompanied by waking in a state of deja vu that had me terrified until I could calm myself down. I only ask because I'm due for my last upgrade this week, and I'm fully expecting another night of deja vu terror. I think they could be some sort of seizure, and I dont have a clue why they only… read more

Do Any Of You Have Startle Seizures?

Do Any Of You Have Startle Seizures?

My daily (no less than 10 times a day) seizures are caused by startles. Research says startle epilepsy is very rare for adults. I'm 29. Any unexpected touch, sound, smell, view, or taste does the trick. Examples: honking horn, my husband kissing me unexpectedly, smelling something strong or stinky, tasting things I don't like, seeing a surprise. Those are just examples. There's 100s more. I blink hard and immediately can't talk or walk. That's the minimum. It can go all the way to jerking… read more
