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 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.
I stayed at my best friends house, woke up, had a seizure. She was wonderful about it. Cared for me, made sure I was safe. Now I’m feeling strange about it all.
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.

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?

Lose balance because legs turn to rubber Can't break the fall because arms are also failing.
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?
