I don’t know for sure if hallucinations are another type of seizure. But I do know for a fact that medication‘s can cause a side effect of hallucinations because I experienced it with Topamax.

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!

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…

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

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Last night, well I guess early this am I was awoken due to a dream that I have had before 1 other time, but this time I felt completely different. It felt as if my brain was rapidly firing vivid images still and like it was tremoring out of control. I have have had slight brain tremors before but nothing like I felt last night/this am.

What Are Good Medications For Partial Seizures?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hello I have partial seizures and right now I am on toparimate, lamotrigine, clonazepam, Citalopram and days before and after my period acetazolamide. I used to have Generalized so I got a VNS (Vagus Nerve Stimulator) and I was good for 1 year, but then the seizures came back and my neurologist now says they have changed to partial. She first suggested switching to perampenal, but I saw all bad reviews and I’m conflicted if I should switch medications. Does anyone have any good suggestions?

Do You Hallucinate During Seizures?
A MyEpilepsyTeam Member asked a question 💭

I tend to see things when I have my seizures. It's really crazy. One time when they had to revive me, it was like I could see them from above working on me and shocking me with the paddles. Other times it's like I see things constantly that I know aren't there. I see stuff like wavy lines, curvy spikes and colors and crazy looking designs for stuff in my head. I want to use what I see to help me later on to become a glass artist like Dustin Revere. Dude busted his ass despite being an epileptic… read more
