Every couple of years I have seizures then my Dr wants to try something new or ups the dosage. The meds I'm on now are making me dizzy and off balance
Does anyone know when side-effects of topamax will ware off once you stop taking them? I've been taking them from the age of 10-21. Now I've been off for 2 months

I have a friend who just started having seizures last year unexpectedly. Neither me or his partner have any idea what is causing them. Being that they are after puberty the seizures don’t qualify as epilepsy and fall in the Seizure dysfunction category. I’ve tried to get him on this site but it’s been a no go. If anyone has any advice or ideas let me know.
What are you trying to accomplish. I to started having seizures late in life. In my mid 30s. If this just started tell him to cover his financial ass. There’s insurance like Aflac, for the house… read more

I am 22 years old, I just graduated from college. I am young and I like to go out with my friends and family and drink with them. I know that a lot, probably the majority, of the people on this will respond telling me not to drink any alcohol because it is dangerous. However, at my age and my social life, it just doesn't seem reasonable that I can not get drunk and have fun with my friends and have fun in my 20's like everyone else can
Anyway, the day after drinking though is when I have the… read more
