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
Will it set off with excessive motion.
I have heard of this but I am afraid to shell out the money only ro have it not work. I'm waiting for it to be out a little longer so I can hear how well it works. If it works well, I would be more… read more
Those with epilepsy that had children what was your experience like? Did you have to be off your meds? Was it scary? I know I still have lots of time to worry and decide if I even want a family and Ik I can have the conversation with my doctor when the time comes but share your stories
Meds for epilepsy are one of the safest for pregnancy. My son had severe cleft lip & palate cause 40 years ago there weren't. Read my story to see how I know so much bout this. During my pregnancy had… read more
I was told I have Grand Mal and other Seizure Disorders one of them called Pseudoseizures . Anyone else ever hear of this? I'm told it's hard to diagnose and often gone undiagnosed or is missed. My family and I was just grasping the Grand Mal Seizures now there's more to try and sort thru?
I agree especially with MarKC - thanks for reminding me of ' non epileptic seizures' I've also heard of them being called ' pseudoseizures' too
Hi all. To those using Tegretol. Did your memory worsen after you started to use it? I am on 200mg am and 400mg pm. Thanks.
I've been on this for 24 years I had my last increase a few months ago so now the dosage is getting very high.

So I'm going back to college. I start on August 11th. Here's my deal though. I've been in and out of college since I graduated in 2009 because of Epilepsy problems. I've gone to college three other times already. Also for three different things. Should have stayed with the same track I know but I'm indecisive and I get bored easily. First time I was at the community college, I was there for my AA but I had just found out that I had Epilepsy. My GPA started dropping near the end of a year and a… read more

Has anyone had side effects with certain foods, with your medications. Cause ever since I started taken lamitical I cant eat any of the spanish beans I used eat. Which is weird. It used to be fine when I ate spanish beans with rice but ever since I started taken lamitical for my seizures is that a side effect or no?
I'm on that but I'm just getting immune to every medicine 😢 I wouldn't take Felbamate
I had the surgery when I was 42. Most of the memories, I was left with, are from when I was a kid.
I havent quite noticed too much loss of memory yet. Only minimal short term memory loss. Like trying to remember words, or something i dod like yesterday. But other than that i still have a pretty… read more
The first seizure was at school surrounded by a few friends (all about 13), cared for by teacher and school nurses. Second was at home with my husband and my Mum.
My heart just broke for my son watching his seizure. Ive been waking up early mornings crying with seizure flashbacks (our first time ever witnessing one), or this morning its anxiety. In all honesty, I am worried and scared, and just want to know we’re not alone (even though i know we aaren’t) - does that make sense?
I'm sure he appreciates all you do for him. I had bechets disease in 2000 which left lesions on my brain. I had to have surgery in 2009 to get cut out as much as possible. I still have seizures but… read more
