What kind of medicine should I choose?

What kind of medicine should I choose?

Ok, maybe you guys can help me! My doctor gave me four types of medication to research for my partial (non-convulsive) seizures: tegretol, aptiom, lamictal, and vimpat. I have read about them but the side effects, etc. generally seem to be the same. Does anyone have any recommendations for one versus the others? Thanks so much for any insight you can provide!

I got my tubes clipped after having an emergency C-section and now my seizures are worse than ever before.

I got my tubes clipped after having an emergency C-section and now my seizures are worse than ever before.

Does anyone know if it is not good for females with epilepsy to get their tubes clipped? My seizures were under control (0 for four years)until after I got my tubes clipped. Now I have from at least 1 a week to as many as 20 a week and 2-3 periods a month. Never have I had this before. Any help would be great.

Oxcarbazepine & pregnancy?

Oxcarbazepine & pregnancy?

Someone might have already asked - I’ll start with a bit of background

I’m 19 years old, I have been on depo provera (birth control injection) since I was 13, that’s a long time I know but I’m essentially not allowed to come off it because of my seizures around that time of the month.

I’ve discussed with my nurse about coming off it when I finish university (I’ll be 20, turning 21 next July) to try and start trying for babies! I’m in no rush but I know it’s going to take a long time… read more

Side effects

Side effects

Does anyone have any personal suggestions for how to get rid of the nausea and dizziness from my medicine. I take a lot and it can get really bad sometimes as to where I need to just take a nap to get rid of it. My doctor can’t do much it’s because of what type I take and how much. Lamotrigine, Zonisimide, and Divalproex.

Is this strange during the postdictal stage after a seizure?

Is this strange during the postdictal stage after a seizure?

I have found myself on odd occurances not being able to talk like my tounge just refuses to function. I know what i want to say but cant get it from my head to my mouth. However, sometimes i have been able to write what i want to say, type it or on occation try and sign it...mind you i cant sign very well i only know barely the basic’s but i still try. Has anyone ever had that happen or is it strange for that to happen?

How to stop a seizure

How to stop a seizure

I here people say when they feel a seizure coming that take their medication (with aura's or seizure dogs). I take 1- 1000mg keppra in the morning and 2 at night but sometimes I feel them coming and can't stop them. My question is what type of medication is taken to stop them at that moment.
