Common Questions and Answers about Seizure disorders long term outcome


Avatar n tn I was wondering if it was a possibility that it could be another long term adverse effect of the Adderall? They have become very nervous and fidgety, neither were before taking this medication. My step-son has the most severe sypmtoms.
1363810 tn?1279229271 I'm seeing many posts from forum members who say they not only found themselves in neuro limbo land, but were also unceremoniously dumped into the nebulous psych patient category. I'm not a mod for this forum, nor a long-term member of the community. I'm just one of you, an anonymous writer and fellow limbo lander with a curious streak. I'll post another thread just for discussions' sake.
162948 tn?1205256292 Has anyone had the Mirena IUD and had it removed to ttc. I am just curious how long it took you to conceive after Mirena IUD removal? How long until your menstrual cylces were regular? I got my IUD out on Aug 5th and am ttc. I have had lots of spotting and maybe a period but nothing regular. I called my doc and they said that it takes 3 months before the hormones are out of your system. The mirena website makes it sound as though you can get pregnant anytime after removal.
Avatar n tn Dear PetPete, Potassium Bromide is considered a very safe long term management tool for epileptic seizures in dogs. The initial loading and induction phase is often characterized by sedation of the nature you describe. If the dog can eat, get up to go out and move about, then the sedation is likely acceptable, if your primary goal is to limit seizures, rather than side effects. Let's not forget that limiting seizures is the primary goal and doing so can be life saving.
Avatar n tn I could lessen the effects of them by relaxing my mind and body, by not resisting when I felt one coming on, and by not trying to control or understand the strange thoughts and feelings that consumed my body during a seizure. This though is not really control, it just took me a long time to figure it out. If your situation is similar to mine, know that being diagnosed with epilepsy does not necessarily mean giving up your independence or altering your lifestyle.
Avatar f tn He also put me on some anti-dep called Cymbalta because he said my long term chronic pain has me depressed---shoot, I knew that already! They are appealing the insurance company (bastards) who denied my 2 disc replacement surgery as experimental. They think I should have a fusion-but 2 doctors both agree the outcome from a double disc replacement will give me a much better quality of life than a fusion. I'm so frustrated!
Avatar f tn In more serious cases, these diseases can cause hearing and/or speech loss, blindness, permanent brain and nerve damage, behavioral changes, cognitive disabilities, lack of muscle control, seizures, and memory loss. These patients may need long-term therapy, medication, and supportive care. Bacterial meningitis is a rare but potentially fatal disease.
Avatar n tn Although one manufacturer states that peak plasma concentrations may be higher with chewable tablets than with conventional tablets, a crossover study employing this manufacturer's tablets in adults with seizure disorders showed no such difference.
Avatar n tn As regards curability, this depends on the underlying cause of the inflammationm, generally vasculitic disorders are controllabe with medication but medication may be required in the long term to maintain control, the outcome realy depends on the type of vasculitis of which there are many subtypes.
Avatar n tn The two possibilities that come to mind as I read your post are sleep disorder and seizures. Some people with seizure disorders only have them during the night. This could explain why her legal guardians may not believe she has a problem. They haven't seen it. Same issue with the sleep disorder. Although they may see behavioral problems during the day that result from these episodes.
Avatar f tn I do not have any seizure activity. I have also researched all the types of demyelination disorders. MS is the only one that fits. The main question was is there anyone out there who has or has seen these types of episodes?
748543 tn?1463449675 Ever wonder why your chiropractic adjustments don't hold for long? Of course we can exercise and be mindful of our posture. However long-term we see that this conflict will have its say. In my experience, examining both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients of my practice, I have found most often that even in asymptomatic patients the area of conflict lies within the spine; namely the cervical area. So the price for accommodation to the poor bite is most often paid for by our neck.
1438412 tn?1315511519 I'm sorry I've been out of touch for so long. I've been slipping deeper and deeper into depression. I been on every drug I can think of but nothing seemed to help. I was ready to give up and wanted nothing more than to die. I finally was honest with my doctor. He suggested that I go into the hospital and consider ECT treatments. They have helped me. I had no memory loss. If anything my memories of the past have improved. You ate totally sedated and feel nothing.
Avatar f tn Forms of dysautonomia such as vasovagal syncope and POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) are FREQUENTLY misdiagnosed initially as psychiatric in nature and it can take *years* to get a proper diagnosis. The tilt table test is the correct test to get the right diagnosis if some form of dysautonomia is causing the fainting. Klonopin is an anti-anxiety medication prescribed generally for panic attacks, not depression, or sometimes as a sleep aid.
Avatar f tn Could you please get a copy of all the blood tests, urinalysis and any other test results and post them here so I will better able to help you. This is a serious and complicated question and I really require as much information as possible, so that I will be able to do the question, and your dog justice. Thank you! Dr.
968908 tn?1274874715 They are anticonvulsants which can also function as mood stabilizers. In regards to Diazepam, avoid using this over the long-term and take it only when absolutely needed. The drug is short-acting (6 hours), and tolerance rapidly develops over a span of several months of repeated daily use. Several sources claim that given the prolonged elimination half-life, tolerance does not develop.
Avatar f tn Doctors lock that Xanax up so damn tight that they squeek when they walk. They don't care how sick you get, nor does the hospital because if they did they would have given you a 45 day supply of 2Mg bars. It's like HELLO doc I'm already an addict. You can't make my addiction any worse than it already is by making me get sick.
1548028 tn?1324616046 Jordan was concerned that he can't remember things-short term mainly and retain for any length of time.
748543 tn?1463449675 People who have a poorly aligned bite or missing teeth can have related problems, such as frequent headaches or Sleep disorders, because their Jaw muscles must work harder to bring the teeth together, straining the surrounding muscles." a simple Google search for TMD would have provided this author with a wealth of informative sources regarding her subject. I, as most responsible medical professionals, believe in using the most conservative successful form of treatment.
2103599 tn?1333827458 They have helped a lot of people, however, the SSRI/SNRI meds have pretty much replaced them due to less side effects and less long term effects. Some people that don't respond well to the SSRI meds may be Rx'ed a Tricyclic, and people have had good results with them. It's an option, but not typically a very common approach. Typically, another SSRI medication would be tried first before changing class of meds.
544292 tn?1268886268 Theres a lot of conflicting information about seizures on the list. I've never seen anYone have a seizure in tramadol WITHDRAWAL. Have seen several people have seizures when TAKING tramadol. AND, every tramadol related seizure I saw did not seem related to how high a dose the person was taking; RATHER was in instances where someone markedly INCREASED their dose. I think the confusion is in that seizures are common when withdrawing from sedatives (alcohol, barbiturates, benzodiazapines etc).
603015 tn?1329866573 I feel that she has waited long enough to grow out of it and I am concerned what impact this will have on her long term.
Avatar f tn I hope you heavy heart can heal and move forward in your life no matter what the circumstance. My husband father was killed in a long term hospital (long story) and his temp was 105/105 also. It is hard to accept when they might have lived. This was in 1990 and still we have days that are hard, missing him. Take care, keep posting me, Okay?
Avatar n tn My point here is, although you do not mention problems with addiction to klonopon, PLEASE try other methods to ease your suffering besides these benzos, which I was taught at the treatment center are really only good for short term anxiety and sleep problems, it is not meant for long term. They put me on pheno-barbitol (spelling?) so I would not have a seizure coming off the klonopon.
544292 tn?1268886268 The length of time withdrawal symptoms occur can range from a couple of days to weeks depending on how high your dose was and how long you were on the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can be reduced by discontinuing use of the drug slowly (i.e., gradually reducing the daily dose). Tramadol is more complex than other opiate and opiate-like medications because it also appears to have actions on the GABAergic, noradrenergic, and serotonergic systems in the brain.
190559 tn?1280615967 The treatment forces your body into a grand mal seizure and can affect memory, cognitive function, and learning in the short term. Our daughter has displayed symptoms of both mild hyperthyroid and extreme hypothyroid states over the past several months, sometimes even fluctuating over a few hours or days. This fluctuation has also shown up on thyroid blood tests both in Philadelphia and Milwaukee, but so far she has not had a full thyroid panel done.
Avatar n tn I have had this vibration for two weeks. Just prior to this, I had blurry vision, days-long dizzy-disorientation feeling, tingling, mental fog. I recently acquired Horner's syndrome, where one pupil stays small even in dim lighting. I have always been a sane, rational person, but this is so strange. I don't know if my doctors are taking me seriously.
Avatar m tn Surgical recovery takes a few weeks - hormonal can take a long time depending on hormones lost - at least thyroid and some are temporary some long term. Depends on surgical skill and anatomy of tumor.
Avatar m tn Some people had the smell, but were able to get rid of it with long-term antibiotics. 3. Some people had cysts or polyps, which blocked off parts of their sinuses, and created a pocket of infection. One woman, after reading my journal, made an appointment with Dr. Murray Grossan, who invented the Grossan Irrigation Machine, and he removed her cyst and the smell went away. 4. One man did a sinus flush, and some white tofu-like chunks came out.
