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
Hello! I could not find any answers to this topic. Do you all find that you generally need more sleep than others? I know everyone is different, but I find that I usually need 8+hours of sleep daily. I am very diligent about getting enough sleep as that is one of my main triggers. On the weekends, I can easily sleep for 9+ hours. Is anyone else like this?
I would say yes, I’m the same way in that I need about 8 hours on a regular schedule in order to function normally, and without it I’ve been more prone to seizures. But I purposely plan and keep to… read more

When you are asked to take medication in the Morning and Night when Label on the box, would you follow it to 12 Hours between taking it, or what would you think of Various time in the Morning and A Various time at Night? If you didn't have a set 12 Hour Period would you think people would have more Seizures, Because I use to work early at 6am up to Last February, but would take my Medication at 9pm for Night , so this would be over a 12 Hour Period.

I’ve had epilepsy since the age of 2. I’m now close to 50 yrs. Of age
I had serzuire since I was 2 yrs old and I am 31 yrs old and my son is 10 yrs old just wondering if he would have them or if would get them from me
I was wrong in my original comment, you can pass epilepsy through genetics. Although just because you have epilepsy doesn’t necessarily mean that it was passed on through genetics
I know you’re meant to take meds at the same time every day.
I take my morning medication at ~10.30am, but I work casual in retail - sometimes I’ll have morning shifts and be in the store in front of customers then.
I usually take my meds before the shift (today, that was ~8am). Is it better taking them then, 2.5hrs early, or afterwards, ~1hr late.
PS. There’s not always a chance for me to duck out to my locker and take them on time, and there’s no chance I’ll take them in front of customers.
Do you get a lunch or dinner break at work ?
If you do ,take it with your meal on your break.
My meds has to be taken when I eat.
