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.
