Does anyone else have a severe allergy to a seizure medication? I am allergic to Lorazepam (Ativan) which is a very common med they give at hospitals to stop seizures
This past April I went in for a seizure and was actively in one. The doctor yelled for Ativan and my friend immediately stopped him and informed him of my allergy. He looked at her and said that’s not a deal or possible allergy. After he gave me the Ativan i immediately swole up and went into many more seizures. That night it… read more

Can Anyone Please Suggest A Good Online Seizure Journal Or Diary?

Can Anyone Please Suggest A Good Online Seizure Journal Or Diary?

I like the Epilepsy Foundation Seizure Diary or journal, but past medications show up on the medications list, but do not show that I don't take them anymore. I want to provide a solid history of my medications for my upcoming consult. The medications list looks like I'm taking all of them. You only know I stopped the meds, if you click on the medication.

Make your own. Just buy a steno notebook to keep track of your seizure activity. And bring it with you to all of your appointments with your neurologist.

Psychiatric History And Trying To Diagnose Abnormal Seizures

Psychiatric History And Trying To Diagnose Abnormal Seizures

In March this year I suddenly started having seizures. I’ve never had any before in my life and since then I’ve had more than 150 seizures during the day and hundreds of episodes during the night that I’m unaware of, but have evidence of them on video footage.

It showed that I have hyperactivity of the… read more
