Controlled Until 2014 When Toxic Encephilopathy Resulted In Grand Map Seizure And Double Vision.
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Tried many anti seizure meds and they only differ in intensity and duration, frequency fairly constant-when trying to nap in afternoon or starting with drowsiness 8-9 pm. Frequently awake with recurring seizures (my doc calls them episodes since I don't lose consciousness. A few puffs of medical marijuana allows me to return to sleep without fear of more seizures. Now trying Aptiom (sp?) after Dilantin, oxcarbazapene, carbazapene, kepra, lamictol, etc., etc.

Has Anyone Taken Zonegran?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

This medicine has so many side effects, with eye pain being one that I am terrified of because the medicine can cause permanent vision loss! I swear this medicine is going to turn me into a hypochondriac. Every odd feeling I have I check the side effects.

Now I’m trying to figure out what constitutes as eye pain. Is the eye pain in the eye and or around the eye. I do have an oddfeeling in my brow area but I wouldn’t consider it pain. The side effects are just worrisome to me
