Advice & Tips
A year ago I was taking Keppra, and Lamictal plus a trial unknown medication. I had more sizures these past two years than all my life. It was decided that my seizures are chemical opposed to electircal and I was being over medicated. I asked to get back on Tegretol. My Neurologist took me off of the other meds and started me on Carbatrol. I am not as tired being that I am not taking 3 types of antiseizure meds. My only other major concern is not having a reliable medical insurance, and not being able to pay for meds some months. It is nice to be mostly seizure free. I had lost my driving license last year, and now have the privellage back.
Since I have been NMO IgG positive, but no clue yet as to whether I have relapsing NMO, my neuro said he didn't know if this medicine was doing any good or not. We are under "watchfful waiting" to see if I have another episode. I have only had one so far and hope that's all!!
