Common Questions and Answers about Seizure medications listed


Avatar f tn Also he is over weight and I am trying to lower his weight, I would like to know is this safe to do or will this cause a problem with his medications? I used to use Science diet light, but some of the things listed on the package make me wonder if this is safe for him, what are your thoughts on all of this? Thank you.
Avatar n tn My husband 39 years old, had sinus problem and doctor prescribed Azitraz, Cetzine, Pantamax and Dolo on 03/02/08, he took three doses of the medications and on 04/02/08 around 8.30 p.m. he suddenly had seizures and the doctor say it as GCTS. He has not had such episodes in the past.
Avatar n tn I'm not the Vet, but wanted to say that there is a thread going over in The Pet forum, under Dogs, that may have alot of your answers. It's on the first page titled: "Seizures....Epilepsy?" There are also web sights listed dealing with the subject (On this thread). Maybe this will help you....Good Luck...
Avatar n tn Here is my question when I have my migraines (especially the ones that are sensory triggered) I feel so out of it and my sister swears it is like I am having an absance (sp?) seizure because she says all I do is stare out into space. I did have an EEG and this was "normal." Ever since I had to stay up all night for the EEG I have been in a huge migraine cycle and constantly feel scattered sometimes light headed, and even dizzy.
2030686 tn?1351692148 If the doctors think it is a toxic buildup of the medications you are on, maybe they should think about changing the medications or changing the dosages or some other such tweaking of the medications. They also should do some blood levels to see how much medication is in your blood. Also, if the doctors think you have serotonin syndrome, they should do some more in depth investigation into what is really going on. Serotonin syndrome is not a diagnosis one casually tosses about.
Avatar f tn It has been two days since his last seizure but he still hasn't fully recovered, he doesn't know his commands, the people in the house ( including me ), or the other dogs and cats in the house. I want to know if he will even recover from this or if there is something I can do to help. He keeps pacing and whining, even in the middle of the night. Should I bring him in again? Could there be something more serious going on?
Avatar f tn Yes, my husband uses it for bipolar and for antidepressant/mood stability, but also for seizure depression as well. Valproic acid is used alone or with other medications to treat certain types of seizure I know you are worried and afraid for your daughter. I have no advice about what to do, just wanted you to know I am hoping all goes well and I am so sorry about it all.
Avatar m tn I had a Seizure occur almost 3 months ago while on the Antibiotic Tetracycline. The Dr. said that was the most likely cause. All tests on my brain came back normal, but during the Seizure i bounced my face off what at the time seemed to be an extremely hard bathroom floor. I had fractured my nose, severely lacerated my upper lip and chipped 3 teeth. I do not drink alcohol or submit myself to illegal drugs.
Avatar n tn // I'm not a medical professional, just the parent of a kid with diabetes, and I don't know all the specific of your son's case, so I'm resisting saying exactly what happened to him. But that site does describe the condition pretty well. Again, I'm very sorry for your loss.
Avatar n tn Hi, There are some medications that may cause seizure as a side effect. However, what occurs to one may not occur to another. This is why it is difficult to prove this. Let us wait for your neurology consult to help clear some things and rule out this medicine issue. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn I who have GAD and depression, and my wife who is bipolar, have come to find out that phenylalanine (Aspartame), often found in diet drinks, can create the symptoms of "feeling high" and cause "brain zaps" while on anti-depressant medications. I was on Effexor a few years back and would have some nasty brain zaps if I drank a diet soda. If I drank too much, I would get a "high", almost out of body feeling.
1303966 tn?1296743610 I'm currently not on any medications other than natural supplements. I was on Keppra, but it changed my personality drastically. Has anyone decided to take medications instead of surgery? What I'm trying to say is to control the symptoms rather than opt for such a drastic measure such as surgery. I'm one of those people who do not like to take medications because of the side effects and what the meds may do to my health down the road.
Avatar f tn But now that she hasn't had an epilepsy episode in over twenty years her doctor isn't considering her history of seizures and claims that she won't have a seizure from any of the medications listed above. I'm worried about leaving her alone on the risperidone and I'm also wondering how long would it take for me to know if there is any side effects from the medications listed.?
Avatar n tn It is important to have Dingo examined and tested to establish if she does have a seizure disorder, or heart disease, etc., and if she does have a seizure disorder, it would be best to find out what the pre-existing cause is, and treat it appropriately, if possible. For Dingo's own good she should probably be treated for the seizures and/or the anxiety. Many seizure medications also do help with anxiety.
Avatar n tn Topamax may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide. I have taken both medications alone and in combination and have not had any problems with weight gain. I found however, that Topamax was not very effective in treating my mood swings, whereas, Lamictal was an excellent mood stabilizer for me. I am currently taking 400 mg. per day, which is the maximum dose. I also take Remeron, 10 mg.
Avatar n tn Elizabeth, I do not personally prescribe this medication, but if your doctor gave it to you for seizures, it will have a mood stabilizing effect since most seizure medications do, and some have even been adopted for bipolar. But the fact that it works for you does not mean that you are bipolar. On the other hand, if your mother is bipolar, it may work for her just because it works as a mood stabilizer. I don't know anything about the frequency of psychosis and doubt that is common.
1475202 tn?1536274577 I know my neurologist will need to taper me off of the medication but I worry the most that I increase the risk of a more severe seizure? If so what could I expect? I realize this is probably a question for my neurologist but with hepatic encephalopathy I'm not always quick to think of the right questions. Thank you for any suggestions. My dosage is 300mg twice daily.
148588 tn?1465782409 I remember filling out the usual InTake forms, where I listed all the medications I was on, on the first appt at my Treatment Clinic. But then, also, when I ordered my meds ( Pegasys, Ribavirin and Victrelis) from the Specialty Pharmacy, I spoke with a very nice Pharmacist, who also asked me to list any and all medications I was on.
Avatar n tn Hi! The first thing to be ruled out is recurrence of hemorrhage, and whether the depression in skull has worsened. It can recur in old brain injuries. Loss of balance can be also due to inner ear problem, Meniere’s disease, diabetes with peripheral sensory neuropathy, Parkinson’s disease, affect of certain medications, past head injuries, loss of foot’s perceptions and sensibilities, Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT), joint weakness etc.
Avatar f tn Just wanted to let you know, that seizures can be caused by stress. I've even seen it listed as one of the trigers for bringing on a seizure. Fatigue can also contribute to seizures. I'm guessing with your depression and grief comes a certain amount of fatigue. My heart goes out to you, losing your daughter. I can only imagine what your going through.
1745492 tn?1320201940 Also common with just one of your dx'ed issues is prescribed SSRI or antipyschotic type medication, medications have common side affects but pwASD do not always respond as expected to medications, and side affects can be an issue. Our DD tried 4 before she found one that worked for her, and our youngest Aspie got worse on his meds, his even serverly retarded his growth until he stopped taking it.
Avatar n tn At the levels you are taking, almost no side effects are listed unless it is taken with other anti-seizure medications, which is not the case here.
Avatar f tn Hi and Welcome to MedHelp's Pain Management Forum. I do not take the medications you have listed but I have seen similar lists by other members. I am not very familiar with Butorphanol but know it is a potent opiate... as is Demerol. You say you obtain Two bottles a week. I have no idea how many are in a bottle so I cannot provide you with an opinion if this seems to be excessive quantities or not.... nor did you provide the dosages of the Demerol or Butorphanol.
1438638 tn?1304950057 So I think it's safe to say there's definitely an upper limit on how much you're going to gain on it (unless you can somehow retain a LOT of fluid ... LOL), vs. medications like seizure meds that I've been on that have caused as much as 50 lbs. of weight gain for me. (I don't even want to talk about how long it took to get that off. Ugh.
Avatar m tn I take six meds, but I don't know which one is the anti-seizure one... I think it may be the Klonopin. BUT you might have something totally different, and you should see your doctor about them, and if there is any way to make them stop.
Avatar m tn The demands of being in school may lower seizure threshold. There's no easy way to identify the cause of a seizure disorder. The MMR and other vaccines haven't been found to be associated with the development of seizure disorders, at least not so far. Unfortunately achieving 100% certainty in medicine is virtually impossible. I live with this myself and have seen it many times.
Avatar n tn My husband is on 3 different seizure medications which include Lamictal, Keppra and Tegretol. He has had a very itchy rash that has been spreading over his body for about 6-8 weeks now. We finally was able to see a Dermatologist this morning and he thinks it may be Lichen Planus. He did do a biopsy and we will have the results in 10 days. My question is.....
Avatar f tn In people with a history of seizures, doses of anti-seizure medications may require adjustment because evening primrose oil may increase the risk of seizures. An ingredient of evening primrose oil, gamma-linolenic acid, is reported to lower blood pressure in animal studies. Although human studies do not show clear changes in blood pressure, people taking certain blood pressure medications should consult with a healthcare professional before starting evening primrose oil.
Avatar n tn my new doctor took me off the meds and said the previous doctor should not have prescribed them to me because i have a seizure disorder, though the old doctor never bothered to have me see a nuerologist to find the cause, i actually noticed a decrease in the seizures when i started the adhd meds. the new doctor sent me to a nuerologist and helped me find a psyc to see if putting me back on the meds would be ok.
Avatar f tn I first noticed my dog having a seizure back in Aug. Soon after doing this bloodwork, Chem, and T-4 test, my vet had my dog put on Levothyroxine Sodium 0.4 mg twice a day. He has since had two mild seizures, one Oct 8th and then again this morning, Oct 25, 2010. He has deep breathing, almost sounds like it is laborded breathing. My vet seems to feel that we have him on the correct dose since the last test done 30 days later showed he was at 2.9 ug/dL the range is on this test 0.9-3.9.
