Bloody Nose

Bloody Nose

My mom has had her 3 seizures within the last year she has not been diagnosis with epilepsy as now. Today about 3 hours prior to having the seizure she had 2 back to back nose bleeds. Does that mean anything significant?

I used to be prone to nose bleeds because i had a weak blood vessels in my nose that could be the reason .

I Have Been Seizure Free 6 Years. My Neurologist Increased Lamictal Because After Bloodwork, Said It Was Not At Therapeutic Level. Why?

I Have Been Seizure Free 6 Years. My Neurologist Increased Lamictal Because After Bloodwork, Said It Was Not At Therapeutic Level. Why?

I don't understand why I would need more medication if I am seizure free. It makes me sleepy and depressed. I have been on seizure medication for 50 years and seems to me it causes clinical depression which I have dealt with for many years.

Should I Expect To Lose Weight Coming Off My Dose Of Depakote

Should I Expect To Lose Weight Coming Off My Dose Of Depakote

I'm weaning off 125 twice a day with the goal of being off the depakote completely. Total i take 250 mg, my question is should i expect to lose weight from subtracting such a low dose from my regiment. When i was on a higher dose before and came down i lost quite a bit of weight, but this is a way lower dose I'm not sure what's going to happen, and I'm just really thrilled to be finally able to get off of it completely, hopefully anyways. Wish me… read more

Has Anyone Ever Had A Really Bad Bloody Nose After A Seizure Or Along Side A Bad Migraine?

I had 3 seizures tonight, I don't know how long they were but my mom and sis told me that in total it was 15 minutes. About 5 minutes later, I got the worst migraine ever on the right side of my head, everything was blurry and I was having vertigo and was hearing ringing. Then my nose started bleeding. Has anyone else had this happen to them? Or maybe something like it?

Lamictal/lamotrogine And Sore Throat Stuffy Nose

Lamictal/lamotrogine And Sore Throat Stuffy Nose

Im only on 150mg of lamictal at the moment but still increasing, aiming for 400mg before my next check-in with my neurologist. Ive read a stuffy nose and sore throat can be common side effects of lamictal. Ive had these symptoms for about 3-4 weeks now and had to take antibiotics at one point as it became a sinus infection.

Do the the stuffy nose and sore throat symptoms go away or just a chronic thing to get used to now?
