Does Anyone Else Experience Paranoia?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I know I already asked about hallucinations and there was a few answers. I've talked to my neurologist, he doesn't think the hallucinations are caused by the med I'm on but he's changing the med anyway because it isn't fully controlling the seizures possibly (?) (I maybe having them in my sleep, we don't know for sure) but better safe than sorry. But, even before the med change I was experiencing paranoia, not like I was paranoid I was going to have a seizure, but like legit paranoia at night… read more

Does Anyone Suffer With Hallucinations, Either Due To Their Medication Or As A Seizure / Aura?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Im really struggling at the moment. I see things that aren’t there, specifically at night, it scares the life out of me and I can’t sleep. Im on Lamotrigine and currently having my dose increased slowly (25mg every 2 weeks) I don’t know if it’s due to the medication or a type of seizure in itself. They don’t happen every night, but enough to be a worry. Impossible to get an appointment with my neurologist at the moment too!

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member

Hey ! 😊 I Hope you’re doing good. I’m curious about what kind of hallucinations you have at night? I have hallucinations too in the dark but I’m not taking the epilepsy medication anymore…
